The beach is really crowded and the beds are next to each other. It means that you can t decide if you wanna stay in sun or shadow cause you can t move it... the service is terrible and doesn’t justify a price of 25€!...More

They have totally destroyed one of the most beautiful places in Paros... Noise blares from the beachside bar as you fight your way to the seaside through a wall of seabeds. Sunbeds are parked as close as possible to the waves.  Axxording to the law...More

We visited this beach in juli, would not recommend it. Very busy, packed with sunbeds (4 rows crammed together on the e-mail stroke of sand). Clear, shallow water and nice, fine sand, so it is probably a nice beach on more quiet days.

Nice sandy beach with clear water. It is possible to find marginally secluded spots away from the crowd.

We initially put our towels at the first bar but went down to the end of the beach and there was a great beach bar. Many reviews said quite expensive but you get what you pay for. Great afternoon!

Over priced for no reason.. 25euros for 2 sun beds, understaffed.... Free big parking witch is a plus.. i feel that Paros needs more beach bars like this to develop healthy competition, like Zakynthos has for example...

We drove to the beach and enjoyed the views across the bay and explored the beach but felt it as a bit crowded and not suited to us at our age but would not knock it.
