The water is there, the pebbled beach is there. But nothing else. No restaurant or bar, no water, no toilets. The place is empty. But still possibilities for a good swim. You need to bring yourself whatever you want. We hope it will be better...More

I don't recommend this beach. Yeah, water is clear - so clear that you can easily see how much rubbish there is. Unfortunately. Ranta on epäsiisti, meri on täynnä roskaa. Rannalla ei ole palveluja. En suosittele ajamaan tänne, saarella on paljon parempia rantoja.

The sea was beautiful, crystal clear. But there were no facility around. No umbrellas, no sunbeds. You should certainly bring umbrella, water, food with you.

This used to be a favourite when the taverna was still there but now it is a bit of a dump. The old family tavern with the archway that was used in the Mama Mia movie has been levelled and the site is apparently under...More

We were so disappointed when we arrived here in May 2015 this once beautiful beach has been completely forgotten due to disagrements from two parties - it would have been such a high light to have experienced it when it was full of life. What...More
