This is the cool Athens. This is the hip city part where great restaurants and shops are. Also great night life. This is a neighborhood vibe of local hipsters and cool people like NYC village. Shopping high-end or boutiq shopping it great

It's 5€uro entry. Per person. No Inflatable water park like it states on their website. Sand is clean, water clear. Good changing facilities and the bar is nice - friendly staff. Woman on the entrance door was rude though.

The beach is really nice, sandy and safe. The cliffs are really nice to have a panoramic view over the coast ;)
