We enjoyed this beach. It is slightly pebbly. It is right at the end of the airport runway, but the noise did not bother us as there is only about a handful of planes a day going in and out. It was amazing watching them...More

Lovely little beach at the end of the runway (airport) with great views of the planes taking off Literally flies over you. Exciting stuff on the beach. Plus the clear waters of the Agean sea ❤

This is not the most popular beach on the island but that means that it's not crazy-packed with people and sun loungers. It was windy on the day we went so the sea was a bit rough as it usually is on the northern side...More
