Lovely beaches which were fairly quiet in September but I suspect are very busy at other times. Long way from the Chora so you would need transport although buses go once a day and return later.

Can be reached by car/bus/motorbike. Long beach, sunbeds for hire but free if you eat/buy drink at the taverna. We have only visited it in September so it wasn't busy then, nice & quiet, and great for swimming & chilling out.
