Not much to say other than this beach is a must for the island! This beach has amazing crystal clear turquoise water. The fact that there is a boat taking you with just 10 Euros with return makes it even more unique! Just remember to get something to eat and drink (and maybe a tent for shade). Extra Tip: In...

This is one of the finest beaches I've been to; crystal clear water, scenery, old chapel and unspoilt. The road down to it is 8 km off road and descends about 800 vertical metres. The last section to the beach is probably the only difficult-ish bit, but all is perfectly do-able in something with 4WD. We did see one 2WD... More

I wish i had read the comments before i come here .. Dont come here with a compatible car, only with an off road or 4x4 ... 1 and a half hour road ...at least the destination was worth it.

Healthy mediterranean cuisine with high ambitions. Local Products with light flavorus that can easly compete with some Michellin restaurants. The food there tasts still like food and not like plastic!

A lovely and beautiful beach, thankfully still hard to get to by car. There is a small canteen that is open during high season and the road to get there is very rough and virtually impassable without a 4x4. You can rent a boat from Karaoulanis in Chora and go there yourself, or you can take the planned boat that... More

This beach is where the river Achla ends. And is located under Vourkoti village. Achla is an impressive biotope with plane trees very close to the sea. The sand is white and the colour of the sea is unique.

We were extremely pleased that our jeep made it to this stunning remote beach. It's a real rough journey but really worth it. Total peace & relaxation.

We took the Steflines at Chora harbor in the afternoon (caal for reservation) and in half hour from Chora after a nice boat trip you are at this beautifull beach .... A few hours later the boat picks everybody up again ... € 12 for an adult return, and our child went along for free (9 years) great day

If you plan to visit by car/motorbike think twice. The road is rocky & very long. A very well advertised beach but with nothing more to offer vs the competition (ie Vitali beach) plus a nightmare to reach with anything but a boat.
