Considering its vicinity with five star resorts, one might think this beach can be as well a place to display the latest luxury brand sundresses :) - but it's not. It's actually hardly set up at all, with modest sun chairs you can rent, a...More

This is a cute little quiet beach, a few shops, and some bars and tavernas. I've reviewed the Taverna Stelios which is on this beach, so great food and drink can be found in this little slice of paradise that is hidden away. Great swimming,...More

Small and enclosed on all sides by cliffs and buildings. Seems old and retro so don't expect modern surroundings but if you want to relax, this is the place.

Beautiful beach - well maintained with a life guard - it was great watching the hustle and bustle on the beach with the diving school, etc and you can walk out quite far - it is quite difficult to get in due to rocks etc

A small local beach, a bit stoney but pleasant enough for a few hours. Some good shops and bars, worth a good look around.

Stopped off for a quick drink during a walk, the beach was empty and the tide was coming in so we didn't stick around. Barman was pleasant. No toilet facilities and a step hill down into the beach.

This is a lovely little beach to spend a day at and something I would definitely recommend if your hotel is nearby. It is a fairly small beach and a little rocky, but apart from those drawbacks it is amazing!
