Well worth the visit especially if you like swimming. The ferry was oldish but very clean and served good food & snacks. Bring plenty of water when disembarking on to the beach. Be sure to get back on the ferry on time.

Yes you can swim at this beach. The hotel has some sunbeds on the beach. But the blue lagoon is some kilometers away from the hotel and you need wheels to get there. Another nice beach some kilometers away is falassarna.
