We travelled to the beach by bus and got the water taxi back. The use of the sun beds is free. There are two very good tavernas on the beach. The water is clear and the sea calm. A stunning place to visit.

It's about 25km. You can visit the beach with the taxi boat, take the bus or rent a vehicle and drive there. It's a really nice beach
