Drove here from Kamari for a break from the pool. Decided not to use the sunbeds (nice and exclusive area) since we only stayed for a couple of hours, hence we walked some hundred meters away. It was quite OK to lie on a towel,...More

Ambiance is great, but don't come for the service. Come for ambiance. Waited for too long with no service. It was quite comical attempting to get the waiters service. Once we did order the service was very efficient and food was good. Worth the drive!

I caught the boat from Akrotiri for €5. It takes about 30 mins to hop from the Red to the White and finally to the Black. The Red Beach is a tiny strip populated by lots of people and is best viewed from the water...More

Beautiful small beach with in my opinion the best taverna on the island. Authentic with a capital 'A'. Probably only a dozen tables. Fish cooked outside in what looks like a pizza oven. You can watch the chef put some fish and shrimps on the...More
