In case of any problem, the corresponding services of Paroikia, 22 kilometers far away at the Northwest, are available for you.
Access to the beach is easy by rented or private car and motorbikes. If you reach the beach by yacht, the small port of the settlement is suitable for mooring. Of course, if you stay in the settlement, you will reach the beach on foot.

The beach is not organized at all, nor has it any accommodation or food and drink facilities; it is quite remote, far from the public road, almost hidden. You will arrive there via a dirt road, which is not easy to find and you should have precise instructions.
This very quiet remote but very beautiful beach is ideal for enjoying swimming and sunbathing in a crystal clear sea, almost alone, as if it was your private beach.
In case of emergence you have to return to Paroikia, some 18 kilometers northwestern to the beach.
Access is to the beach is possible only by private means (car or motorbike) and it is not easy at all. If you come here from Paroikia ask the locals who know the place to show you the route and follow the instructions you will be given.
