On a sunny day we spent most of our morning at Gialos beach, the sand is white and soft, we chose to stay in a section where most of the locals are settled and had a wonderful morning

I'll start by saying I'm not much pf a beach person, so bear that in mind. However, I have been to and loved Elafonisi beach in Crete, and the Maldives etc. Gialos was a bit of a trek down a very twisty road. That's OK....More

Having read other reviews here, I felt the hair raising car journey down steep, potholed roads with seriously tight hairpin bends would be worth it. Sadly, it wasn't. This is a beach that is better seen from above and, from that point of view, it's...More

Beautiful location but don't be misled by the reviews talking about a sandy beach. It's pebbles and if you want to be comfortable, bring some water shoes. It's pretty but in my opinion not outstanding other than the colour of the water.

Endless broad sandy beach, partly organised (choice of having with or without music). Sufficient snack bars and small tavernas allow to have decent meals during the stay. Water is amazing see through and incredible blue hues, pebbly and with larger stones when entering. The sand...More
