The shoreline of the beach is typically composed of a combination of pebbles and sand, whereas the ocean is characterized by a stretch of pure, fine sand and pristine, transparent waters. Nestled within the most serene corner of Keratokampou bay, this beach offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The beach offers a stony shoreline, with a gentle slope leading to a sandy bottom. Despite its narrow width, the bank stretches for a considerable length and is equipped with convenient amenities such as showers and cabins for changing. Accessing the beach may require a winding drive along a lengthy and twisting road, but the journey is well worth the effort. Upon arrival, visitors are greeted with a serene and peaceful atmosphere, as the location is largely unspoiled by tourism and frequented primarily by locals.

The beach offers of pristine waters, so clear that you can see the ocean floor. It's a hidden gem, mostly frequented by locals, with hardly any tourist crowd. You'll find ample facilities like showers and changing rooms scattered throughout the beach. The shallow and sandy bottom makes it perfect for swimming and playing in the water. Don't forget to try the local delicacy, Keratocampus, along with some dry bread for a true taste of the region.
