It is a relatively small beach, with a length of 120 meters and a width of 5 meters. Its coast is covered with fine sand and small pebbles which continues to the seabed. Its blue crystal clear waters are quite shallow in the first meters, which make it ideal for families with small children.

In the early season is a small, quiet fishing village with a nice beach partly sand and partly pebbles, with umbrelas and sunbeds. There are some very good taverns: Psaropoula, Patimenos, Pyrofani and Zorbas – the choice is difficult because everything tasted very good at fair prices, with nice hosts, and extremely tasty wine. Add to that a full moon over the bay – what more do you need?

Things to do

There are two very convenient hotels on the beach, Panteli beach and Castelo and nice tavernas. In Pyrofani tavern you can find all kinds of tuna (depending on the season), lakers and first quality fish at very good prices. Another authentic option is Patimenos, on the beach. It has fresh fish and wonderful lobster pasta. For sea bream or wine with seafood and swimming in the sea all day, Psaropoula is what you need. So is Tzouma’s cafe on the beach. If you find yourself in Pandeli in September, you will enjoy the trawler and fisherman’s festival, where fresh fish is of course of honor.
