“Fabulous beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Probably someone already wrote it, but this is a beach where Luc Besson shot parts of his Big Blue movie. It is wonderful, long, wide, with clear, blue still warm water perfect for swimming. When the weather is good, you can see Santorini from there. There is also a taverna on the beach with good Greek specialties. I didn’t see lots of sunbeds and umbrellas, but it was off season.

Definitely worth to take time and drive south (approx. 30 min from Hora) to spend time there, great beach, we’ve loved it.

“Chilled out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Worth the journey getting here as you get some really interesting landscape pictures. Good fun kayaking out and around the bay. Restaurant is pretty decent as well.

“BEAUTIFUL BEACH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Really solitary place (if you go on september!). You'll always can choose between the sandy beach or the rocky and pebble side. Try both.
