Narrow strip of sand with some seaweed, but perfectly adequate for lazy days in the sun. Even at the end of August, it wasn't too crowded. Becomes stonier as you get closer to the rocks at the far end (even more stoney after a few nights of spectacular storms!), where there is some good snorkelling. It served us well for a fortnight.
Everything you need for a peaceful, relaxing break. Evening entertainment is low key to say the least, the Friday night 'traditional' Greek entertainment at the Eliniko restaurant is about as raucous as it gets. We tried all the restaurants along the front without complaint, our favourite actually being 'the Garden Grill' on the street running parallel to the front - family run, friendly and with all Greek staff. Best Greek menu was at Persa's restaurant set back from the road into Katelios. Good range of gifts at Marinos supermarket, but my wife and daughter preferred the craft shop next door to the cbr car rental office. Our favourite time of day was sitting on our balcony in late afternoon with a couple of Ouzos, listening to the silence and watching the eagles riding the thermals above the hill next to our apartment.
