A row of lovely, small pebbly coves, very close to Livadi, and with an amazing view to Chora and the Venetian castle.
A tranquil and unspoilt beach with crystal clear waters surrounded by a rocky wilderness, on the west side of the island.
An idyllic beach combining sand and pebbles with crystalline blue waters, greens growing along the beach, again on the west side of the island.

A tiny rocky cove with crystal clear waters and unique rock formations, located just before the airport.
A sandy beach, conveniently shallow for the children, shady and well protected.
A pebbly unorganized beach of transparent blue water and amazing sea bottom, very close to Maltezana bay.
A fascinating stretch of soft golden sand, on the north east side of the island, quite close to the airport.
