If you care to preserve environment leave this small beach to locals and go somewhere else. It is not meant to cater for a lot of tourists.

We visited this beach as we found out about it online. We parked by the house at the end of the road as the car park only fits around 4/5 cars. It was a picture perfect little beach but doesn't fit many people on it....More

The beach is much, much smaller than photos suggest and I wonder if some of it has been washed away. In addition there are a lot of steep steps to descend and there is only room for parking for a few cars. I wondered if...More

When I read all the previous reviews i expected a real hidden gem. As it turns out, it is an oke little beach with sand. I found it small and overcrowed. To many visitors for such a small beach.

Sandy beach with turquoise water. This is a small cove and gets very busy, also there is limited parking, although you can park along the road.

Found this little hidden gem down the road from our villa. Walked along the beach/rocks to the right and found somewhere nice and private. Great for snorkelling, beautiful clear water.

We spent a week in Cephalonia and visited this beach twice. To me, this beach was the absolute best we came across (and that says a lot). It's very small and intimate, and if you go there early in the morning, you can actually be...More
