“One highlight of the Northern-coast”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

The Nas-beach is a quiet place some 15 kms from Evdilos-town. Although it is a bit off the chart, you will find some accomodation, cafes and taverns at the vicinity of the beach, so that you can easily spend a day or two there. Not only the beach, but also the "gorge" is a nice attraction, especially if there is water running through. There is quite a lot of wild camping happening at the bottom end of the gorge, something that I did not find disturbing because the atmosphere stayed calm and peacefull. For decent hikers, walking the gorge up and down is definetly worth the effort, the beach has rough sea due to the shape which is channeling the waves to the coast, making them bigger than at other beaches nearby. I would recommend to go into the water only if you are experienced swimmer.

“Say hello to Artemis while you're there!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Gorgeous beach, very peaceful. Quite a walk down over the steps, but well worth it. As others have said, the under-tow can be fierce there, so don't chance swimming there in rough surf. Be sure to visit the foundation to the temple of Artemis while you're there!

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This beach is beautiful but small. It is known for its views at sunset - definitely the time to visit! Be careful getting in the water if the waves are high as it could be very dangerous.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Not easy to get there but one should go.Be aware of nudism at the far left side. The close to the steps right side is the best part with small pebbles and natural shade under the rocks after 3PM

“A beach to be wary of.”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Pros: not large, picturesque, sandy with pebbles, warmer sea being in a small cove.

Cons: nudist, gets deep quickly, can be dangerous when windy. Loads of steps down to the beach.
