This is our second visit to the beach this week. The bay is small and unspoiled. It has a serviced beach with toilet changing rooms and cantina. Simple but clean and welcoming. Stunning views to Kefalonia , great staff!

A boat journey took us to Ithaca’s Polis bay which was quite a refreshing change and not atall crowded, a swim in the sea and seeing shoals of tiny fish. Then over to Fiscardo. Which is a must see.
