Definitely off the beaten path... unorganized and secluded beach. Had to walk 5-10 thru the cedar forest and then a somewhat challenging hill but it was totally worth it. Water was see thru. We had our private cove and enjoyed the peacefulness. A couple nudists...More

The beach is beautiful and the water is crystal clear- perfect for swimming. Be warned though- there is absolutely no shade, so take an umbrella with you!

It's soooooo worth it to travel down soutch the island to visit this remote beach! If you prefer a more secluded and naturally shaded type of sunbathing then this is the place to be. Who needs parasols when you have these beautiful trees to hide...More

Rented a car, drove to Alyko. Beautiful beach. Access is through some foresty dunes, and to get to the beach you will have to make a semi climb down some steep areas. Water is clear and beautiful. It was a bit crowded unfortunately. When we...More

In the South west of Island in the Aliko park. Really wild ambient for the better beach of the Island in my opinion. The car parking is on the road and you need to walk in the pathway on Sand and dirt for 10-15 minutes...More

Getting down to the beach is easier on the Migri Vigla side. Please treat this place like a treasure. To me it really is incredibly beautiful and visiting was the highlight of my holiday. Beaches are 90% nudist. Quite a few coves for 1 on...More

Not exactly sure, what this is, our accommodation was at the Cedar Forest, it is Cedar trees on the sand dunes. If we were not staying here, would not have come to visit.
