Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful bay with a sandy beach and clear waters to swim.
After the wild fires recently the main restaurant and loungers on the beach have all burnt but the water sports and one smaller place are still here.

We have watched this place grow over the last few years and in June 23 it was a stunning luxurious place with great food and drinks. The kids loved the beach and the bar / watersports was amazing. It's safe, calm and ideal for families wanting that classy beach feel.

I am so saddened that it was gutted by the wild fires. I really hope they can rebuild it back to its former glory and I'm sure they will. It was a great place to come and I m sure they will pull it out the bag.

Wishing the owners all the best

The beach itself is amazing as it’s soft sand and when you go in the sea the soft sand continues so no painful stones under your feet, very child friendly and had no problems parking around 1030am BUT the sunbed prices are crazy, for two beds at the front it’s €50 (100 if you want a great big one slightly nearer the water!) then €40 for the next row back and then €30 at the very back, the food in the big structure is ok but a bit pricey and the snack bar at the side of the beach is ok. The toilets are very clean and the place has a nice vibe but I did get the definite impression everyone thought it was overpriced !

This is a small but beautiful sandy beach. Much is taken up by the most comfortable sun beds you can imagine and using these and the bar they're connected to made for a very comfortable day - probably not such a good experience if you don't as you're then pushed to the edges of the beach. The central bar is expensive but good quality. The small cafe at the edge of the beach was a little cheaper but the food was basic and disappointing

This used to be such a lovely, laid-back beach. On a very recent visit the new monstrosity looks like it's almost ready to open. What happened to 'environmental impact' here? Also very strong smell of fuel from the boat hire drifting over the beach. Such a shame.

We have visited this beach numerous times on our previous holidays because we loved how quiet and natural the beach was but they have now started constructing a huge stadium like building that takes up a huge part of the beach and is a complete eye sore. Wasn't needed at all and I expect prices to soar!
At the moment it is €15 for two beds, parasol and the use of a safe which is really good.

Having reviewed previously, the beach was nice, but the structure on the beach is awful. The sea was dirty and black oil in the sea, the beach was filthy and the parasol beds also blocking the views.

For me one of the prettiest beaches some years ago, but now the last place I would visit.

Certainly avoid the water with kids as oil on skin is a carceogen. The Greek authority should really be ashamed of this place.

the new owners have ruined this beach with a very large structure. It is an illegal build. They have ignored orders to take it down.
