It is located right after Agia Pelagia gulf. It is a small, picturesque beach where the water is nice, the rocks form arches and the beach has fine pebbles. Unfortunately, it is one of the local favorites, so if you arrive on a weekend or in the afternoon weekdays you most probably even find space to put your towel and the nearby hotel has put sunbeds everywhere. Still, it is one of the most beautiful beaches near the city so don’t fail to visit in a weekday morning, before the ‘barbarians’ arrive.
