Really nice setting, the walk is long but worth it, it is very shallow and good for children the sunbed man was a little moody it gets deeper gradually then there’s one big drop.

A quieter beach, but with friendly staff and even some impromptu 'jamming' in the bar from some singers/guitarists. To have the choice of both traditional taverna and a beach bar was great. Sunbeds were comfortable and access to the sea was OK.

10 minutes by boat [€6 return] from Pedi. Nice location and beach, good bar and restaurant. Go early (before 10:30) to chose the best place.
