  • The beach is lovely but to get there we must descend stairs before and suddenly quite leaning downhill after: then you have to pay what was said above all to return uphill!. The beach is tiny, crowded with entire bus unloading tourists in waves; White is refreshingly cool water but becomes deep now! Attention!! Silver jewelry wearer himself, as happened to my wife and as a souvenir of the day the surprise of a total oxidation of jewelry, bracelets or necklaces! In 5 minutes the presence of sulfur rocks abounding in water, let us remember this, and then you will need to then Rust removal with cleaning supplies. The odor or scent, as they called him more, to me that doesn't love eggs, is quite awful already when you get on the road. In Zakynthos there is definitely better!

  • Heard a lot about the benefits of hydrosulphuric sources, but did not think that this is true. This year had the opportunity to visit this beach 10 times. So take a water course hydrosulphuric baths. It's really healing springs! The body feels rejuvenated, joints more flexible, great skin, the nervous system is perfectly restored. If it is not possible to visit this place a few times, do not despair, even after one day you feel a surge of strength, incredible lightness and road up is not difficult. Near the beach on the parking site (places) there is a café, you can make a reservation and you descended his rope ladder. Ibid. at a site near a toilet (not very pure). Change you there. no beach huts, a small Beach. many people can fetch water in a bottle and take it with you. Thus pursue a course adoption hydrosulphuric baths

  • Small but lovely beach characterized by turquoise water. On the contrary from what they say the water is not cold and the smell of sulfur feels really cheap. Recommend arriving early if you want to avail of the sun beds and umbrellas (€8 and there are about 10 umbrellas), because after the 10.15 the beach fills with people! Anyway very peaceful place and to visit absolutely!
