We spent a lovely afternoon on this beach after hiking the Samira Gorge. It was hard to get to through the mountains, but worth the effort. Lots of nice tavernas.

Good pebbled beach. Pebbles also in the water. The beach is large and has chairs, umbrellas, showers and lifeguard. Not very children friendly, as the water runs deep near the shore. Restaurants and café alongside the beach.

Very large beach with small pebbles and coarse sand outside and rocks inside. The sea gets deep almost 3-4 meters from the shore and about 90% of the beach is free from rented umbrellas and sunbeds.
