This is an expansive beach with black lava ash and rock instead of sand. The beach side is lined with comfortable, padded sun beds and umbrellas, as well as unending tavernas on either side of the boardwalk. After walking the long boardwalk, we settled towards the south end as it wasn't as crowded and we happened upon an area with a couple rock breakwaters that formed an appealing "mini harbor" where many were swimming.
The beach was difficult to walk even with water shoes on, due to rocks and large pebbles, but the water was clear, sparkling and refreshing.
Sunset was behind us, behind the cliff, but the effect was stunning as the sky turned lavender, and the water went from indigo, to turquoise, to silver. The soft muted pastel colors mimicked a watercolor painting.
A beautiful day and a beautiful evening.
