“Snorkelling paradise”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

A long way off the beaten track but if you like snorkelling a good sea food meal and peace, this is the place. We have just got back and had a great day. The beach is a long way down a track with a shingle beach and a taverna. We had a great seafood meal of shrimp, calamari and a Greek salad with beer to drink, very nice and good value at 24 euros for the two of us. Then a snorkel in the sea where we saw lots of different fish and an octopus. A lovely relaxing place but don't expect 5 star facilities.

“A pretty, quiet and relaxing beach.”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

A small, quiet and secluded beach with taverna and free sunbeds. Good swimming and parking. Your will need a car (or good legs if on a bicycle; it is quite a steep road!). Well worth a visit.
