We went for an early morning swim and the long ride to get there was worth it! Shower and beach lounges available. Just bring your bathing suit and beach towel.

Amazing clear water with not so much corals but still quite a lot of fish, even saw octopussies. Nice beach with a small restaurant. Well worth a visit!

The entrance fee for PortoMari is 3,- USD per person and an optional beach chair costs 3,50 USD. We don't have taxis readily available at our location, so the best thing you can do is make an appointment with the taxi... More
