“Busy vibrant area”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Nice to visit but rather busy and the small beach was crammed with sun loungers. Enjoyed a beer overlooking the sea and people watching! Well worth a visit.

Nice and sandy with organized restaurants providing service on the beach. Possible to get a boat to nearby beaches too.

“Our favourite Mykonos beach”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Due to the time of year (before peak season) most of the 'party beaches' didn't have much of a crowd during our stay but persisted with blasting dance music. The scene at this beach was very different, people of all ages lined the sunbeds along the beach front creating a lively yet relaxing vibe.
We found the time of year perfect as all of the cafes and restaurants are open but they do not charge for sunbed use so you can have a few drinks at each place or find a favourite like we did (Atlantis) and enjoy cocktails and snacks whilst lounging in the sun.
The view is spectacular, the water is clean - it looks beautiful with different shades of blue and green.
The beach is of postcard quality and offers the perfect holiday experience - don't go to Mykonos without giving this beach a try!

“Good beach for the area”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The water color was nice, and the view was decent. Too many umbrellas for my taste, however. Also, there are a legion of Asian massage therapists that walk the beach and continuously harass you to let them give you a massage. They have these laminated anatomy cards that are kind of weird that they wave in your face. If you could get rid of them, the experience would be so much better.

“Perfect”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Went there with a friend during the off season..cafes closed and people just getting their businesses ready for summer...and it was amazing...had the beach to ourselves and were able to use beach chairs and umbrellas for free. Sunny, warm...clear turquoise water... Perfect! Buses only came here from Mykonos at 7am and 2pm (April) so that was a bit inconvenient but took a cab for 10 euro and decided to walk back after..which was alright.
