We jumped on a boat from Chora and 30 minutes later we arrived at this lovely peaceful beach. A family of swans visited us. Well worth a visit. No cafes or ice cream vans, just enjoy the swimming and exploring the cave.

The beach is really nice and extremely quiet in early June. We walked there from the monastery. The way down is easy, the way up a bit harder (but we did it in 1h15).

Shadow is sparse on the path and on the beach, so bring water and sun lotion.

At this period, no beach bar was visible.

A lovely and beautiful beach, thankfully still hard to get to by car. There is a small canteen that is open during high season and the road to get there is very rough and virtually impassable without a 4x4.

You can rent a boat from Karaoulanis in Chora and go there yourself, or you can take the planned boat that goes there as well. Both of these options are only weather-permitting and boy is there a lot of wind in the Cyclades! I have gone there multiple times both by car and by boat and every time it is stunningly beautiful.

The waters are crisp and clear, the beach has tiny pebbles that are almost sand-like, and the beach is large enough so you can avoid other crowds. I love this beach on the low season or late spring. A true gem that's worth visiting, but always come prepared with water, umbrellas, and patience in terms of getting there and back :)

If you plan to visit by car/motorbike think twice. The road is rocky & very long. A very well advertised beach but with nothing more to offer vs the competition (ie Vitali beach) plus a nightmare to reach with anything but a boat.

Came here by boat from Chora (12.5 euros/person) due to hard dirt road access. The beach is nice (not spectacular) with a nice natural environment because of the river which ends there.
However, we were negatively surprised by the noise coming from the beach bar, both from the music and the very loud electric generator.
In addition to that, view to the sea was disturbed by a large number of boats parking all across, so blocking it all. Plus it was stressy to swim a little further because some fast boats were coming in with high speed (which is illegal) plus there were also a few jet-skis close to the shore making it even more dangerous for swimmers.
On some point we also saw a large wave of bubbles and garbage floating out, probably one of the boats emptied their trash there:(
This beach should have been completely unspoilt, but human intervention once more ruined it...

We took the Steflines at Chora harbor in the afternoon (caal for reservation) and in half hour from Chora after a nice boat trip you are at this beautifull beach .... A few hours later the boat picks everybody up again ... € 12 for an adult return, and our child went along for free (9 years) great day

and maybe one of the best beaches on the world. Keep in mind that access by car is very difficult, and the 8km from the main road is so badly that can take more than 40 minute to descend. When you decide to go, find a boat or rent a 4X4 car. The scenery is breathtaking and the bad road prevents crowds to descend, so it is very quiet. The waters are unique and you should pay a visit to the small river.

Achla is one of the island's beaches that are not easily accessible unfortunately! We went there with a boat, as going there with a car, except a 4x4 jeep, is not recommended (the road is really bad). Anyway, the water was amazing and the beach so quiet! Definately visit it for a dive!

Endless beach with crystal green-blue water.
No facilities like sun umbrellas and deck chairs but is worth a visit.
Perfect for panoramic photo-shots. Mid September is an ideal season as you'll never meet more
than 10 people. Ideal beach for nudism lovers.
