* There are pebbles along the coast with sandy sea bottom. The number of sunbeds and umbrellas hired is a bit restricted (cost of hiring is about 5 euros for two sunbeds, one umbrella), the trees along the beach provide natural shadow though. On the beach road you will find taverns and cafes that serve coffee, beverages and snacks.

* Marathias beach is a tiny beach very quiet that has very few sunbeds and umbrellas surrounded by rocks. Food and beverages must be supplied before you go to Marathias. The beach is not recommended for young children as the sea water is crystal but it is quite deep. The access to the beach demands walking through a path for about 200m from the main road. It is ideal for isolation and relaxation.
