Easily accessible by car. Better roads than trying to get to Kechria or Ligaries. Sandy with shallow waters. Occasionally windy but that makes it more fun with waves but can also be very calm. It's very quiet and relaxed with no heaving hoards or banging...More

You need a car to reach this beach, but worth visiting. We visited end of May/beginning of June and it was so peaceful. Quiet, even when the boat trip visits, as most people visit the beach cafe.

We stayed not too far and we're walking distance to this beach. The sun beds were €4 each. Really pretty beach with sandy/light shingle. The Aselinos Taverna was great for lunch. The kids ate calamari. My husband and I had a mixed salad with chicken....More

We hired a small Suzuki Jimmy 4 x 4 and went to this beach over the mountain on very rough sand roads; though it is accessible using β€œmain” roads. Plenty of parking is available and an enormous Taverna. I asked "why so big?" and was...More
