Hi, Have booked for Anassa Hotel in June and, so far, am quite pleased with my choice. We do like to spend time on the beach/in the sea, and I've just read in a post on here that the sea shelves very quickly on Skala beach. As I am not a strong swimmer and my husband doesn't swim at all, this is quite a disappointment. Can anyone tell me how quickly the water gets deep, and if there is a safer beach nearby? Thank you.
