    Very busy
    Chalkos was the most overcrowded beach we visited.
    As far as I understood, it is very popular among locals, because there were many of them. And the beach is relatively small.

    It has one cafe/snack bar and amenities.

    To access the beach, you have to drive a little via dirt road that is pretty tricky (narrow).

    As most of the beaches, it is pebbled and has deep waters.

    In the middle of nowhere
    It was very difficult to find Chalkos on Kythira. We had to see the map, follow some signs that were not very sufficient, ask a local shepherd who couldn't speak very well because he had only a few teeth left(!!), but in the end we found it... Calm and wonderful, just before the sun sets, giving the sea beautiful orange and pink colours... Chalkos is truly a nice beach, practically in the middle of nowhere. No houses, no taverns, no hotels close by. At first time, we spent only half an hour there, because it was getting dark and maybe we couldn't find our way back in the unlightned mountain streets of Kythira. Next morning we went again and spent the whole day there, in total peace.
