Unfortunately this area was out of bounds during our visit as there seems to be great works underway to extend the area making it almost twice the previous beach, no doubt the sun beds and umbrellas will arrive soon

Great cafe with amazing views and atmosphere. Good snacks and range of coffees. A chill out cafe where some swim and some just linger. Lovely view over the sea and small beach, a cafe well used by the locals all year round.

On the day we visited, other beaches were teaming with hoardes of tourists but Votsalo was still relatively quiet which suited us, although it was very windy. mEnjoyed our day there inc a pizza delivered by a young lad earning a few quid
