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 “main” roads. Plenty of parking is available and an enormous Taverna. I asked "why so big?" and was...More

We visited this beach for lunch when we did the round the island boat trip. Pleasant enough but not a place where I would make an effort to return to.

We were advised to go here by our host at the hotel where we stayed. It was a beautiful quiet beach - sandy and a little pebbly. It's off the beaten track and there's no sun beds there which is why it's so peaceful. There's...More

Lovely beach, peaceful as we visited early morning. Swimming with fish is fun. Need lots of sun cream

A lovely quiet beach off of the main tourist track, the sea can be choppy and it has a steep drop into the sea. But a great place nonetheless, it also has a nice Taverna with very good food. Well worth a visit.
