We walk down to the beach and it worked out quite perfectly actually, a small town, with practically our own beach. No tourists, just 1 or 2 locals laying further down the beach. The water is crystal clear, with a few pebbles but mostly sand. A perfect way to end our time in Greece. We put our things down ...
