Ok, Simos is the main attraction of the island, but this beach is also magical. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed

this is a nice big beach that goes on forever. It has a great view, nice place to watch sunsets. It is not as spectacular as Simos beach nearby, but Simos is one of the nicest beaches in Greece, so its hard to compete.

It is a nice sandy beach, with crystal clear water. A bit overrated, since there are many such beaches around Greece (in Crete for example). I do not know how crowded it can be in July and August, because in the end of June it...More

Maybe I should not write this, but I love this beach much more than the famous Simos beach. Not so crowded and the umbrellas are not so close to each other (and not to much).
