The best taverna is the last one as... More

There's a 6km drive from Nidri to this beach, but worth it. Good tavernas and a good place there where you can drink a cold frappe, a beer or something refreshing.

Unforgetable beach with so clear water. The trees are going down to the sea. It's so nice and quietly.

The beach must be good because it was very crowded every day. Cars parked all along the roads made it hard to get through the village. Great little supermarket seems to be open all the time & the tavernas are really good

This is worth the 5/6 km drive from the main road from Nidri to Vasiliki. You are welcomed by a beautiful bay, most probably with 4/5 sailing boats moored offshore. This small resort has a number of tavernas and a few bars plus a mini-market as well as providing opportunities for small scale water sports in (probably just) high season.... More

Excellent beach, clear water, good for snorkelling, tavernas available on the beach. Not a sandy beach so bring your snorkelling gear and shoes.

We came here on a rainy day and still loved it. The water was still clear blue and the beach, although pebbly is full of colorful little rocks. There is public parking available on site and plenty of tavernas and shops. Def worth the drive.

We visited this year with mixed age family aged 66 to 13. We chose to bring the family here as we knew the teens would enjoy snorkeling off shore and that it is a very pretty place. Although it was very busy, we managed to park near to the beach and obtained a place to put down our towels, and... More
