Lovely small pebbly beach. Not good for wheelchair users or people with sensitive feet! There are several sun loungers which can be hired but we happily laid on the pebbles and used the back drop of the cliffs as shade. Beautiful clear waters which are ideal for snorkelling. There are a couple of small caves which you can swim out to from the beach.
Two restaurant/bars opposite. At the time of visiting the showers were broken.
Would recommend visiting.

This beach has the clearest coolest water thanks to its rocky seabed rather than sand, and its deep water.

Ideal for swimming and snorkelling, downside is that you need beach shoes as its a pebble beach. Not the best fir small children due to this and the deep water but no currents to worry about.

There is not a lot of umbrellas so get there early if you need shade, however that said its waters are breathtaking and refreshing!

Small beach with pebbles and sand. Good for snorkling. Good place to take a boat to bluecaves. Toilets available only at tavernas.

Firstly. Great place to stop if you're out and about , decent size , quite busy but we found our spot , only downside is that it's a pebble beach and hence getting in and out of the water is very painful .... wish I'd have had suitable beach pumps.... hey ho it didn't stop us having fun in the water

This beach is ideal for relaxing, it's quiet, has a few umbrellas and beds to rent, good for snorkelling and has several tavernas in walking distance.
