This is a stunning pebbled beach with crystal clear water. Wasn't quite warm enough for a swim in early June, but beautiful enough to walk along the shore and immerse yourself in the surrounding beauty of the azure Aegean Sea. Make sure you wear beach...More

From above it takes the shape of a heart, it looks beautiful. The water was very rough and hard to get in and out of the sea. Only one place that has sunbeds and somewhere for lunch.

Lovely beach and bar, staff very friendly. There are not many umbrellas though, so you have to be early to the beach.

We used to walk there early morning and have a swim, absolutely gorgeous. Mostly a pebble beach so can be a bit tricky to get in if big waves.

The beach is pebbled, can be a bit hard to enter the water if it's wavy. The water was warm in June. The beach is nice for taking photos. Go to the church on the hill as the view is stunning.
