Visited the beach every day, very stony but great for snorkelling, you could swim out and stand on the rocks making you look like you were standing on the water! Stelios Taverna is lovely

This isn't a sandy beach and it's quite small. However, the water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is fantastic. Sea shoes recommended.

This beach is reached by going through the hotel at the end of town . We got there about 12 and there were so many people we couldn't even see the beach . Far too small and crowded.

Peaceful, laid-back beach (in October), without excessive commercialisation. Nemo bar and Stelios Tavern recommended.

Staying at blue bay resort this beach was a 10 minute walk away, really nice shops and restruants on the beach front. The sunbeds are $2 and umbrella $3, which I thought was excess considering I didn't ask for the umbrella and you can't move...More

Little gem of a beach if you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track. There’s a couple of supermarkets and taverna’s.

Quite a narrow beach but with nice facilities along the front of the village, taverna's bars, shops, diving centre etc. Pebbly beach but the stones are small so easy to walk and nice to lie on. Sea is clear and nice for snorkeling.
