Wavy Beach

This beach is very nice but it is almost wavy. We love the atmosphere here and the nice environment.

An amazing pebble beach with a river running into the sea. Walk through the woodland path to swim in the waterfall. Then have lunch at Hippys a restaurant on the beach under the trees, great food, inexpensive in a beautiful atmosphere.

Ah the place is Amazing . Behind you is the green forest and on the front of you the clean waters of the aegean sea. The beach is rocky but I prefer rocky beaches than sandy . The water is very clean but terribly cold
