We have been looking forward to our stay Ermones , to be in the centre rather than having to walk for twenty minutes and a taxi back as we had previously done during our trip to Corfu. The information suggested we would be in a little village. I wish I had found my review before booking.
What a disappointment!
Ermones has a postage stamp beach, over half has been taken over by a hotel that stretches up the right side of the mountain. I know it's an exaggeration but it gives you an idea of the terrain.
There are at least four hotels vying for custom in a v shaped break in the hillside. The entrance to the beach on the left side is through either the Nafsika or Maria's restaurant. Even at 14:30 the beach is full , because it's not very big but imagine what it would be like if the other two hotels were open as well!
The nearest supermarket (extortionate), contradiction in terms, but understandable with Coronavirus impact is a fifteen to twenty minutes walk from the beach. Next door is the only bar.
You are a captive audience and this is summed up by Dizi bar. They don't have a menu because of Coronavirus, then you get an extortionate bill. Prices twice as high as the hotel!! All others thrust menu's at you.
People quote areas being spoilt by commercialisation, Blackpool, Skegness, Clacton, Benidorm etc. This overdevelopment in my opinion is worse. They have overdeveloped the little bay with accommodation but no infrastructure. No shop, no bar.
Employment,wealth are created by tourism however it can have a detrimental effect. The environmental impact is obvious but also negative customer experience, results in time with lower prices as they try to entice fewer tourists and ultimately derelict properties as tourists look for better experiences elsewhere.

There is a golf course near by and a lovely walk up hill to Vatos , supermarket and cafe. The next village has a taverna but unfortunately my walk wasn't repeated

This beach is 90% tourists but despite our hotel being busy, there was plenty of room on the beach. However this may be a different story when the other hotels open again. There was boat hire on this beach that I would highly recommend. We paid $25 for a tandem kayak for 2 hours in order to visit different beaches and caves. I cannot recommend this enough.

Visited almost daily as it was the closest beach to our stay however there are a few things which could be improved.

Access is good through the 2 restaurants but the walkways onto the beach itself are not the best. Uneven and some old decking/pallets. There's also an old shower rusting away.

The beach is pebble and sand which is fine however it is doesn't seem to be cleaned at all. There are no waste bins for use and the seaweed coming up from the water is left to fester on the beach, which then smells and attracts wasps. A collection of this daily would make a world of difference.

The large TUI hotel overlooking the beach also takes up most of it with their beds, which I'm sure shouldn't be happening. They have their own attended beds then the staff throw on other, poorly maintained ones for non-clients to rent. On our first day this didn't seem to be too bad as we had room to put down our towels, however as the week went on the area of beds grew leaving hardly any space for the public. This was not great when the tide was high and the only section left was covered in weed.

The edge of the water most days had fine weed but a few meters in the water was lovely. It was perfectly clear on one day only and this was beautiful.

We hired the water taxi from the end of the beach to take us to a secluded beach just around the corner. This was stunning and highly recommended. No seaweed, just perfect clear water. For 7 euro each return it was lovely. Private beach to ourselves!

With some TLC and better management from the large hotel, this beach could be a gem.

Really dirty water (in some places is even brown) and beach, there is nothing there just a hotel and a taverna (where I don't recommend you to eat), really terrible day, my boyfriend got stung by a bee also...we paid 10€ for 2 sunbeds which is a loooot considering the services and the location...the man who is managing the sunbeds is really stressful and disrespectful
We left the beach early

Beware its a pebbly beach not sandy, Its mostly guests from the hotel/apartments on the beach. But we did not feel out of place. We could see the little fish, the sea is clear! Also has a lovely taverna overlooking the beach

I enjoyed swimming at this beach but probably good idea to use rubber shoes as beach is gravel. Beach attendant from hotel was brilliant and worked hard all day. Lifeguard seemed to come and go. Rough walk along path on rhs of beach. General back of beach area could be tidied and open sewer/drainag3 tanks covered or made safe. I don’t like to think how the sewerage system works in such places!?

The beach is in parts sandy, stony and shingle. The sea is as blue as the sky and as calm as a pond. Views are amazing, with the small bay and steep, dramatic cliffs covered in lush vegetation. The guy on the beach looking after the facilities was amazing, working very hard and, because we tipped well, made sure we had the prime spot all week.

The beach beach bar was brilliant: great, friendly service, lovely cocktails and excellent lunchtime meals and snacks. Truly fabulous. The people were so kind and welcoming we never dreamt of searching for a sandier beach.

Loved that our hotel was right on this beach. We spent most of our hotel down at this beach and also rented a boat for 4 hours to go round the little cones along the coast which were even more stunning. The beach isn’t huge and the sun loungers and umbrellas do belong to the hotel but it really is worth a visit with a snorkel! So stunning.

Ermones beach, well rated by many articles published on the web, is the most disappointing beach I’ve seen during my 2 weeks on the island. Firsty, the beach itself is not clean and smells bad at times. Secondly, the water is not clear as many algae are present. Furthermore, on the left hand side of the beach when you are facing the water, if you swim 10 meters from the shore, you will find at the bottom of the water what looks like an old pipe. I definitely not recommend Ermones beach. Near are some beautiful clean beaches with clear waters.
