This is a very nice small beach about 10 minutes from the main beach in town. Neither was very crowed when we visited in October.

Stumbled across this trying to find another beach. The sea was dirty from the stones, if you swam further out it was better. Lots of cigarettes butts around sun beds. These cost 6€ each. Luckily we left before being charged. The beach bar and grill...More
