One of the most beautiful and picturesque beaches in Meganisi. The lush waters combined with the colorful umbrellas and sunbeds compose a dreamy landscape taken from a painting. The beach is not large in area, so it would be good to visit it early in the morning and not at peak hours, it has small pebbles, shallow waters and in some places, it deepens a little. It also has a beach bar where you will find everything from coffee to food and many delicious snacks
