Jarka 25 Aug 2021Nice relaxing beachThis is a very nice little beach with calm clear water.
The beach is quite narrow with tavernas lining the shore. It is far away from the main road so you are protected from the fumes and there is a free car park at one end of the beach.
A pair of sunbeds incl. an umbrella is 7 eur per day. The sunbeds are at a good distance from each other, so the beach does not get very crowded.
No watersports at the beach as far we could tell, but you can rent a canoe.
A big plus is also that there is a free mobile public toilet available which is not completely disgusting .
evibr3210 23 Jun 2008Not great sea but quietWe stayed in Agia Pelagia but didn't like the beach because it was too crowded. So, we decided to look for other beaches in the area with less yelly tourists, which was very difficult in the middle of August. However, we did found Lygaria, a couple of km from Agia Pelagia. The water was not the best but it was a nice, calm beach mostly with locals and nice, quiet taverns by the sea. I thought this beach was lovely and used to go there for three or four times on the row.
