The beach is stunningly peaceful and attractive, despite its lack of development. It's worth noting that the beach is covered in gray pebbles, adding to its unique charm.

The road leading to the beach is a bit bumpy, the effort to get there is definitely worth it due to the beautiful setting. Additionally, the beach is adorned with gray pebbles. Two bars can be found on the beach, and we particularly enjoyed the newer one further down the shore. Our group had a delightful lunch and drinks at the bar.

This beach is a peaceful escape from the bustling tourist spots like the red and black beaches. The water is calmer, and the atmosphere is more laid-back. Additionally, it's worth noting that the beach has gray pebbles.

The gentle lullaby of pebbles colliding with one another as they are carried by the ebb and flow of the ocean's current...

This secluded black sand beach may be a bit of a challenge to locate, but the journey is well worth it. Accessible via a rugged dirt road or by boat, the journey to this hidden gem is an adventure in itself. A small fee of 10 euros will secure your spot on the beach, where you can bask in the sun and take in the stunning views of the Aegean Sea. When you're ready for refreshments, head over to the nearby Mesa Pigadia Taverna where you can enjoy a cool drink while taking in the serene surroundings.
