Beware of the little Hitler in charge of the bar and sunbeds. Spent 17 euros on drinks and was refused wifi password until we had eaten in the restaurant. Needless to say we went elsewhere. Went next door to the much friendlier Vrahos beach.

The beach is nice but the service wasrude and unwelcoming. The cafe and beach next to it was a lot better. I would not recommend wasting your precious vacation days there.
