Good parking. Nice beach. You have to pay for your beach chair rental. Titles come to nest here., so the beach closes at 8 ish.pm. Stairs are an obstacle which may make access to the beach difficult.

A nice beach if you are mobile as the path down to it is rough, the sea is shallow up to about 400 meters out , nice sand , better if you walk up a few minutes .

A pretty beach and very long but quite a way from the car park and bars and cafes and toilets. Gently sloping so good for children’s swimming. Restricted area at the back of the beach for the turtle nests. Beds available to hire.

A stunning beach set against a dramatic backdrop with daylong sun and very shallow waters.Sadly the sunbeds are massively overpriced (and quite dilapidated) and there are no facilities.Best bet is probably to take your own umbrella & chairs.There is a nudist area at one end...More

Gerakas is a great beach with some very good taverns nearby. It's a protected area with turtle nests all over the place, so don't enter the roped off area! The far end of the beach is often occupied by nudists, so don't go too far...More

Great beach, warm shallow water. Sandy no rocks. A large part of the beach is roped off to protect the turtle nests, turtle wardens patrol the beach regularly. Turn left at bottom of slope for naturist area. Happy days!!

Very attractive beach. Big and sheltered with gently sloping sand. You need to wade a long way out for a swim. There are loungers and parasols to rent, but these only go part way down the beach so you have room if you don’t want...More
