The last beach after Paleochora. It's west of it. It is a long pebble beach. To go to it wants a private car. There is a canteen. The beach is relatively quiet and suitable for families.

This beach is one of the best- very clean waters, deep and because it is not near the city it is not so crowded.

Nice clean beach . It takes you sometime to go there and is disapointing when you go there and the kiosk opens when convinient of the owner. Take supplies with you when you go there.
