Most days we swam in the sea.It was necessary to walk for 5 minutes or so as the sea was shallow. It is the only way to cool down here. There were plenty of sunbeds for hire or they were free if you were a...More

This beach has both sand and pebbles. There are about ten beachside tavernas offering sun beds free of charge to customers. The beach and surrounding area attracts quite a few pensioners and those with very young children probably due to the fact you can paddle...More

Sorry but this to me is not a great beach. If you want to paddle in shallow water in front of lots of tavernas and sun umbrellas then ok. Or if you have very small children. Much of it is very stoney and hard to...More

The lovely Katelios beach is just that - amazing views out to the Aegean sea that are unspoiled by tourism. A lot quieter than the larger resorts like Skala, Katelios beach will let your mind drift off to unknown pleasures.

Our hotel was only 50 metres away but we tended to drive over to Mounda beach, this one was quite busy but not overcrowded,, some tavernas offer free sunbeds, none on the southern end.

Lovely beach- not as scenic as some but very peaceful not crowded like some. Plenty of sunbeds and one small café. The sea is very shallow here until quite far out so would be great for families

Not what I would call a nice beach at all, luckily I prefer the pool but the beach here is narrow and scruffy looking. Don’t expect a sandy beach

Great little spot to relax, shallow and warm water sitting alongside some wonderful tavernas and bars without being too busy or crowded. Perfect.

Very pretty tavernas on the front, but don’t leave without visit The Garden. Tucked up a street just behind The Medusa Accommodation. Wonderful

It is worth doing the trip to Drogarati cave and Melissani lake. Fiskardo in the north is beautiful as is Myrtos beach. If it is the same as last year there is a little place on the way to the beach in Katelios where they... More

Hi,there is a limited bus service,and taxis come from Skala,which you can order at most beachfront tavernas or kiosk or if you have reception where you’re staying,but why would you want to leave charming Katelios.
