The beach is absolutely stunning and definitely worth a visit when you're on Poros Island. Don't miss the chance to grab a delicious cup of coffee at the cozy little coffee shop near the Life Giving Spring monastery, located uphill from the beach.

The beach was extremely crowded and lacked sufficient shade. Overall, it was a terrible experience. I had anticipated a peaceful beach, but it was nothing like that. I found myself seeking refuge in the shade, considering whether to hitchhike anywhere but there or wait for the boat to return me to town. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be during the off-season.

I visited the beach on a partly sunny and rainy afternoon in May. It wasn't too crowded, possibly because of the time of year, but it was a lovely and scenic beach. The sand was clean enough to comfortably lay down with a towel, and the sea was also very clear and clean. I would give it 4 stars, mainly because it lacks amenities like bars and umbrellas.

The beach is located a short distance from the city center, nestled beneath a lush monastery. The water is stunningly clear, just as one would anticipate on a Greek island. There is a fairly large beach resort where you can rent an umbrella and two sunbeds for 10€. I wouldn't suggest having lunch there as the options are limited and the prices are quite steep, but it's perfectly fine for grabbing a snack and a drink.

I visited a beautiful bay with tranquil waters early in the morning to witness the sunrise. Although I didn't go for a swim, I noticed the presence of sunbeds for those who wanted to relax by the beach. Additionally, there is a monastery located nearby, along with a coffee shop.
