Early risers can enjoy sunrise in the sea from this beautiful sandy beach. When the time is right the full moon can be seen as it climbs up above the Aegean sea. In the background the islands of Skopelos and Skiathos , and on a clear day Alonissos can be seen ( the Sporades ). The rocks around the beach provide protection from the heat of the day. On the beach there is a small bar serving drinks. Above the beach is the restaurant ‘Climax’ and at the edge of the beach is a small taverna called ‘The Swallows Nest’. From May you can hear the frogs croaking and the nightingales singing as you enjoy a drink on your balcony overlooking the sea. In autumn the cranes often gather here prior to migration. And if you are very lucky you may also sea a school of dolphins feeding.
