Sunbeds: Yes, but plenty of areas where you can lie on the sand
Toilets: In the nearby bars and restaurants

Safe for Kids: Yes, the water remains very shallow along most of the beach.
Food & Drinks: Plenty of nearby bars and restaurants
Seaweed: Not usually a problem
Sand or Pebbles: Fine sand mixed with small pebbles in some parts of the beach
Car Parking: Usually fairly easy to find a place to park nearby
4.0A big sandy beach which rarely gets crowded despite new tourist developments nearby. Plenty of tourist facilities nearby without feeling overly commercialised.
|Fairly narrow in places, but quite a long beach so it only gets crowded close to the resort centre.
|A pebbly beach in a beautiful setting well away from the main resorts so it rarely gets busy.
|A beautiful series of small beaches and all within easy walking distance of the nearby resort of Alykanas.
|A stunning little beach famous for the aroma of 'bad eggs'. It's sulphur escaping from the surrounding rocks apparently!
