Quite a narrow beach but with nice facilities along the front of the village, taverna's bars, shops, diving centre etc. Pebbly beach but the stones are small so easy to walk and nice to lie on. Sea is clear and nice for snorkeling.

Relatively small beach, calm or wavy depending on wind direction, many umbrellas & sunbeds (for those who want them), easy to get to & so-so to park if by car, steep climb back up if on foot or bicycle. Coffee or drinks at Yorgo's "Nemo"...More

Small beach with some local eateries and souvenir shops and supermarket. Access quite steep and not very sandy. Limited space due to small size.

Plenty of beds and parasols available - a man will collect money for use. Snorkelling here is amazing, but sea shoes are a must owing to the pebbles and slippery rocks. Nearby Vasilis taverna is definitely worth a visit too.

Rather small but really stunning. Clear waters, great for snorkeling in - plenty of fish and crabs to see. Bring beach shoes though as it's very stony.
