This is one of the finest beaches I've been to; crystal clear water, scenery, old chapel and unspoilt. The road down to it is 8 km off road and descends about 800 vertical metres. The last section to the beach is probably the only difficult-ish...More

This beach is where the river Achla ends. And is located under Vourkoti village. Achla is an impressive biotope with plane trees very close to the sea. The sand is white and the colour of the sea is unique.
