Beautiful sheltered beach for little ones, as the waters are shallow for quite a bit. Frequented by locals. Play volleyball and go swimming. Negatives are that the sand is wet due to groundwater coming down the valley. The water gets murky from too many people. The bay also acts as a harbor, so be careful of boats.

We ate here one evening and had a wonderful time. The lapping of the water and the view over the bay were wonderful accompaniments, all this aided by a traditional Bazouki player made it just a perfect Greek evening. The food was delicious and finished with the obligatory watermelon and raki. It was a shame we discovered it so late... More

We ate here a few times for lunch and once for dinner. The taverna is in a lovely location overlooking the small beach at Tersanas. The food is good cheap local food with large portion sizes (especially the starters) so be wary of over ordering, as we did on our first visit.

Theo and Kira are the owners of this lovely little restaurant. Beautiful location, right on the harbor. A good selection of fresh fish and wonderful salads and vegetable dishes. Highly recommended.

Oh....Theodoro, Theodoro: you are the best! The terrace, overlooking the bay, the warm welcome, the great meals with the fresh fish and vegetables - being grilled or fried, the endless Ouzo and Raki, your nice family: all will be remembered. The only sad part was your unbelievable luck with the Backgammon dice…
