Love love love! Beautiful scenery, crystal clear sea, clean and well maintained beach. The bars and restaurants are all reasonably priced and you get a free sunbed if you buy a beverage or food, which worked well for us! There is also a shop and...More

Tasos Taverna at Paranga Beach was beautiful. Service was great in a beautiful bay. Will head back there again hopefully before we head home

This beach has soft sand and during May had only one beach restaurant open which was Nikolas Travern. Family friendly small beach with beach beds available to relax.

Shallow sea, and long wide expanse of sand. Restaurants, bars etc, and not too much deafening ear splitting music!

Loved the beach, bar near but also a nice restaurant nearby. Is great to walk on the south facing rock and see the sun go down

The only beach that is close to the port is the small and often quite dirty city beach. One of the closer beaches to downtown and a cab ride away would be Ornos for example. Just make sure you organize a cab for the return... More
