with a totally european and relaxed approach to bodies, dressed and undressed, old and young, this was a lovely place to sun bath and swim and generally dissolve in the lovely sunshine. clear sparkly water, nibbly fishes, good waiter service on the cocktail front - what more could you want!

This beach is just around the corner from Platis Gialias. The water is crystal clear and great for swimming. There is a huge rock in the see a few meters from the beach. People swim to the rock, climb on it for tanning. Great beach, will recommend spending time here.

Beautiful, if smaller beach. Quiet and secluded, clean. No annoying loud music. Not a great entrance into the water, plus a bit more windy than the other beaches, so probably not that suitable for those with young children. Also a 10-15 Minute walk from the bus stop if coming here by public transport. Lovely beach, seemed less Commercial than the... More

Beautiful, quiet beach with incredibly clean water. Didn't need diving gear, the water was completely see through. Two chairs with a cabana cost us 25 euros for the day. The price includes a USB plug, little tables that move towards you when you're ready for lunch, and of course free wifi. Couldn't ask for a better place to relax and... More

Such a beautiful beach! Small and quite, very calm, makes you feel relaxed and gives you a sense of real freedom. The water is so bright, and the music on the beach is great. The service is excellent! True heaven

Paranga is Paranga, not Platys Gialos which is next door. Different beach. Nice beach but chair owners jam lounges in so close you can barely walk between them, and they ask more money they they are worth. They are other beaches. Tassos is excellent for lunch though.
