Myrtos the best
Myrtos: one of the best beaches I have ever been. I have travelled to many exotic islands but haven't found such crystal water. You could see the bottom of the sea even after hours of swimming. It was just a bit difficult to get out in and out of the sea because the coast is pebbled. Not much crowded when we went, in June. Anyway, the beach is so big that you will not have a problem with crowd.
