When we arrived at Afandou beach, we found a very nice, broad, wide beach with sand and small stones and pebbles. The sea was stunningly blue, that gets deep quite fast in few meters from the shore. There was a cozy small bar where we went (remember the beach is huge!) which serves cold drinks and food at reasonable prices. This is a very good place for a relaxing days. The umbrellas and sunbeds were we sat were of good quality, made of aluminum and textile, the snack bar we found is conveniently located and served good food. What we found interesting is that many areas of the beach are still not commercialized, which gives al lot of room to visitors who want to just find a remote spot away from other people.

Small rocks and pebbles, very few people, and you can find also showers and cafeterias and bars there. We prefer our beach completely fine sandy though, this is not to be found here unfortunately. Clean waters though.

Afandou is a lovely unspoiled beach with good restaurants along the shore and some nice canteens and a couple of bars. We would be happy to visit again next year. Maybe see you there!
