Beach looks nicely maintained and is good to sunbathe, but if you come from a warm place (Miami) you will find it lacking. There is a Scuba school and it seems well run and safe. Saw a group of eight go out with three instructors....More

This is a cracking little beach surrounded by pretty hills and excellent Tavernas. Sheltered and well cleaned, a perfect setting for a relaxed day on the beach.
