Nice beach which is sandy and shallow and very safe for bathing. Our group always went to the left by the Vrahos Beach snack bar, which is so friendly. The Plaka Beach bar seems to think that everybody wants to be affronted by the loud...More

One of the best beach we have seen. Ruined by the little rude/uncivil/arrogant beach manager. Better going anywhere else if you want to avoid bad vibrations....
