Little children playing with their buckets in the sand, families from Lindos who are on first name terms with the man renting out umbrellas, foreign tourists and visitors from the hotels nearby.

It's common to observe people enjoying themselves by the seaside while groups of kids are engrossed in playful sand and activities. There is a plethora of of sun loungers. Here, the sea gradually gets deeper. The fact that this beach is seldom overcrowded is its finest feature.

Commented by moon October 28, 2007

This is a brilliant beach for anyone wanting to escape from the business of Lindos and the surrounding area - there are 2 supermarkets and 2 giftshops and a few apartments as well as hotels. There are also 2 greek restaurants which serve excellent greek food, and a rent-a-car and motorbike place. For those staying in hotels there are a few swimming pools but most people enjoy the sea which is usually very calm, and the beach is sandy.There is also a watersports where you can waterski or go on the rings or the banana, and you can also rent pedalos.Its also a popular beach for the locals to visit so it gets busy on a sunday!
