    Beach Petite, but when we go in the morning wasn't crowded, so you could quietly relax. The characteristic "smell" of sulphur feels right from the street. There is also a "bar" that is actually just a wooden shack that offers shade. He takes orders and communicates with a bar above and send things through a basket that glides on a rope; engaging mechanism. The guy who takes your order otherwise is very personable.

    We went to see the beach idea attracted by Xigia sulfur, but when we arrived (early afternoon) was way too crowded and there was not one free place! In fact the Sulphur Beach itself is a pretty Beach and a beautiful view from above, the problem and the absence of parking is that it is really tiny and chaotic; also when we saw it we front window sunshade were unusable because wet from water. We have seen that apart from the most famous beach there was another less known by the same name (Xigia Pelagaki) in 3 minutes by car, so eventually we headed there.

    This is a lovely beach with sulphur permeating from the sea bed. Very small so don't expect large amounts of round to sunbath in. Just go for a swim and snorkel.  more »
