Great beach in a sun trapped cove. Not sandy, but with tiny pebbles roughly the size as rock salt, easy to dust off and it doesn't end up covering everything. The seabed is covered in rocks and great for snorkling as it's teaming with fish....More

There are always taxi transfers going on in Agia Pelagia or at nearby resorts. Ask any shop owner or other vendor and they will be happy to call a taxi for you.

The beach just off the hotel and there is public access. You can get to the Blue Lagoon though the path is not obvious and you have to ask when you are there. Have fun!
