Small village, not much to see or do. We enter , parked, walk five minutes... we understood we are in the wrong place and left.

Underwhelming compared to all the beaches in Mykonos. Good if you’re looking for a beach in Santorini, but there are better ways to enjoy the sun while you’re there.

Single great taverna, 10 umbrellas/paired recliners (easily full), public toilets and shower, lovely long secluded beach with crystal clear water and colourful pebbles. Take swimming shoes for the pebbles tho no urchins seen unlike at Ammoudi rocks.

Quiet beach that has great views of other islands and is slightly off the beaten path. Unique black sand and pebbles (due to previous volcano activity) with a nearby taverna. For a restful afternoon, this is a good option.

Our accommodation was located near to this beach, so was part of our morning stroll routine; however, there are better beaches on the island. Quiet and fairly isolated, this appears to be used more by local residents. Glad we didn't drive especially to visit.
