Beach is rather narrow but the water is excellent for swimming. Rather beautiful views if you walk around the bay.

Quiet and safe little cove beach. Gravel beach with rocky areas beneath the water. Definately need the cheap rubber swimming shoes on offer at the local supermarkets.

The beach is very narrow but is proper sand compared to the stony beaches of the surrounding areas. However It is too busy for me.

A lovely little strip of paradise. A relatively quiet beach with a good selection of restaurants. Perfectly clear water and ideal for relaxing and swimming.

The beach just off the hotel and there is public access. You can get to the Blue Lagoon though the path is not obvious and you have to ask when you are there. Have fun!

Yes there is a bus service into Herkalion around 3 times a day from Agia Pelagia- we found the most useful one was at 9.40 am More frequent buses are from the main road around 2 miles away.
