  • The beach is stoney, so take waterproof footwear to use when swimming. Small bit of coral and some fish make the swimming interesting. To be honest the public beaches nearer town are better.  more »

Course is and how it has nice GM synithisei ego that I am from the Apple I got other standard for beaches. The concrete when the resort was inside the skoypidi and cigarette. Most iordanoi don't know the mean ashtray so petan the tubes in bulk and to beach takes the most needed an special machine. The pragma bythos however is another. Magic the koralia and fish.

  • The beach is beautiful. There are all conditions for a relaxing holiday. On this beach vacation, guests of the city's hotels, which brought in on buses, as well as the guests of hotels located directly beside the beach. A few tips for those who come to the beach by bus. First, grab a sun lounger beside the pool, there is always a place. And on the beach when you arrive places anymore. The swimming pool is located next to the beach and the sea. At sea, you can go for a swim and return to the pool. After two or three hours closer to dinner, to the beach begin to leave people to dinner, lounge chairs are released and you can go to the beach already. Vacationing in November 2017 years, watched the flooding plane into the sea. There a number of already flooded tank. This is done to attract tourists. It was interesting. Along the coastline you can go indefinitely.
