A more secluded place of breathtaking beauty, especially early in the morning when chances are that you find it empty and perfect for pictures. The water is crystal clear but quite rocky, so take a pair of water shoes with you. Also, make sure you have some snacks and maybe water because there is only one small shop on the beach without much to offer. It is mainly there for the sunbed rental (I think it was 8 euros/day).

Trying to keep active whilst on holiday, we have been to Kavos 6 times but never ventured over to the secret beach. This year I asked if we could and to my surprise everyone was happy to partake.
Based on advise over the years we left before 9am and took a stroll along the Rd from our hotel. Its an interesting trail very uneven and some serious slopes and lots of loose stones and gravel so good walking shoes are essential. It warms up incredibly quickly so we were chasing the shade on the way back. The trail is actually a road and you can reach the beach via car etc for those less able. Be mindful as some of the slopes are mountainous. Once there we walked the beach. Gorgeous views and only 3 people on the entire beach. Worth the walk and would show an amazing sunset 🌇 but roads not lit in any way so a bit treacherous. All in all a lovely walk 🚶‍♂️

Great beach about 2 km from main Kavos area. You can walk here but it is hot so you need plenty of water. It is quieter than the main Kavos beaches and it is certainly worth the trip. There are sun loungers for hire (3.5 Euro) and a small cabin that sells cold beers etc.

Walked to this beach from Kavos, and it took about 45 mins. Some of the road/trail is quite steep, but there are plenty of shady areas to stop and catch your breath. Walking would be hard work in flip flops, so trainers are the best option. If you are in a car the road takes you all the way to the beach carpark, although some people choose to park along the road (it is generally perfectly safe for any vehicle, the first section from Kavos going uphill needs some caution).
The beach is clean and long, but not deep/wide; facilities are very limited (no toilets or showers) just the drinks shack run by the sun beds man. Sun beds were 4 euros each in Sept 22.
It is well worth a visit, but it is difficult to imagine being there for a full day.

Beautiful hike from kavos to beach and to monastary. Worth checking out. Went about 7pm to beach hardly anyone there spent an hour there. Great spot for a bit of peace quiet and relaxation. Very busy during day according to locals during high season. There's a kantina on the way does lovely food worth visiting.

After a 40 minute hike up and down some pretty challenging roads/dirt tracks we stumbled across this secluded unspoilt beach. We enjoyed it so much we went several times and were never disappointed. The beach was almost deserted when we went each morning, I'm not sure if it got busy in an afternoon as we usually left by midday. At the entrance there are approx 30 loungers for rent (€3 for the day) and a little hut selling ice cold water for 50 cents a bottle and a small range of soft drinks and beers. We found the central part of the beach to be rocky underfoot as you entered the sea but if you walked further down the beach this changed to sand. The sea was quite calm and, even as a nervous swimmer, i felt comfortable going to shoulder level as the depth increased gradually. We walked there and back but others made the journey by car, quad bike and scooter, however, be warned, the road is full of potholes and rocks so probably not a comfortable journey! There's a small carpark at the beach entrance if you do take a vehicle. I'd say walk if you're fit enough because the scenery is beautiful and just adds to the natural unspoilt experience.
To get there follow the sign for the monastery, part way up the road branches into 2, left for the monastery and right for the beach, take the right and follow until you reach the beach.

The beach is about 2.5 km (20-30min) walking from Kavos ministrip. It is a long walk, unpaved, with stones and pebbles - recommend to wear shoes/trainers/hiking boots. Also recommend using insect spray and carry water as the walk is through the countryside hiking over a small hill, under direct sunlight the walk can be a bit grilling.

But it is all worth it - the tranquil beach is much cleaner than Kavos beach and it is shallower, so water appears to be warmer and has natural breaking waves

There are no facilities on the beach (umbrella, bar, changing room, sunbed) at the time of visit but I understood that the beach is manned during peak seasons.

With help of our host, we discovered a wild beach, almost no people. Light sand, warm clear water, such a lovely place. You need to walk 30 minutes, but it is worth of all efforts.

Far from the madding crowds with only about 10 pairs of good value hiring loungers (with shade) yet maybe a mile? of uninterrupted golden sands framed by rocky backdrops and a perfect sea. Limited refreshments supplied from a small kiosk but you can always take your own supplies. Can be accessed by car (and parking space exists for cars near beach front) yet road is more of a wide tree lined stony/dusty track. Go by hired buggy or mountain bike for best experience, or purely walk (appx 45 min walk from centre of Kavos) if you feel fit enough.
