It is located close to the island's capital, Argostoli and is one of the most frequented beaches of Kefalonia, popular for its shiny golden sand and azure and clean waters.

The coast is equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, yet they appertain to the regional beach bar so you need to pay in order to use them. Additionally, two watersports centers allow adrenaline enthusiasts to partake in fun activities.
