I think Andrew (below), got the wrong beach. Emblisi has lovely fine sand, with some pebbles further up the beach. The only thing spoiling this small, quiet beach was the pylon that you could see if coming back in from the sea. Beautiful view (going outwards), on the sides of the beach there is some slanting rocks which are great for sunbathing and also for exploring. If we weren't based in Skala, 2 hour drive away, we would have gone here every day.
