not very good for kids or swimming but great for a lazy quiet day. flat rock slabs run into the water and can be VERY slippery. not safe for kids although there are a few narrow access points where you can get in to swim. once you get past the slabs it's waist deep onto sand and shelves gradually. the further east you go the quieter it gets. no problem if you want an all over tan - no problem if you don't. just a few walkers passing by who don't seem to care anyway. track runs parallel to beach for easy parking but don't get bogged down. tavernas within reasonable reach. swimming better back towards Acharavi or east to Spiridonas beach which is round the headland.(excellent, shallow and sandy although 2 beds and an umbrella will set you back 9 euros)
good sandy beach in small bay. has a resident lifeguard who seems to take an interest in his job - blows his whistle if he thinks someone has gone out too far. he also owns the beach beds which will set you back 9 euros for two beds and an umbrella. dearest we came across. if you take your own umbrellas make sure you anchor them down as the wind tends to spring up about 3 in the afternoon. lots of greeks go there weekends with their kids. nice sand for buckets and spades. small river to the left of the beach, comes from the nature reserve - kids can feed the fish. good parking behind the beach with shop tavernas and restaurants close by. blue bay resort close by that seems to have it's own little beach and amenities. right alongside nature reserve with walk through to small cove and 15 mins. further to almyros beach. sand gets hot - wear something on your feet - also sharp vegitation behind beach.
