We spent one day on this beach, arriving early (9.30) to make sure we could get 2 umbrellas for the 4 in our team. In fact, the beach has also trees for shade and is protected enough that you can use your own umbrella. Amazing...More

I almost hate to review how stunning this beach was, as the privacy of the beach was spectacular. I went during the off-season in April and was taken aback at how crystal clear blue the waters were. The beach is made of tiny, tiny pebbles...More

Exceptional beauty of nature, water is cristalline. best time to visit during the week to avoid a crowded beach. There are limited umbrellas.

Long beach, where you can enjoy both paid sunbeds or a spot on the sand or even on the marble white pebbles under a tree. Can get quite crowded, bit never fails to offer a sense of feeling of undisturbed Greek nature at its best.
