The beach is pebbly so it... More

We visited Porto katsiki 1 week ago. The view as you arrive is amazing and a feeling of happiness is present as you reach the beach using the stairs. There are also some snack bar before you walk downstairs. The prices are reasonable eg 2,5€ coffee and 6€ salad. Also, there is a parking service -> 3€ all day. Perfect... More

the view from the road while reaching this beach is amazing, and the cliff is very beautiful. however, the beach is quite crowded, and it is quite uncomfortable to stay there, both because of the crowd (given that it is quite small) and because of the stones, making it unplesant to have a walk and difficult to have a bath....

First off, you've got to go with the expectation that the beach will be crowded. It's a crowded beach for a reason; one of the best in the world. The beach, surrounded by high, white cliffs, is gorgeous. Beautiful. I've never seen bluer water - electric blue. Can't describe it, just gotta see it. There's no sand, but white rocks.... More

We approached the beach by boat and to our disappointment there were a lot of garbage and oil or fuel floating.

Last years earthquake has actually seen some benefits to the already renowned Porto Katsiki beach. The beach seems to have been smoothed out and extended further from the cliffs meaning more room for people. It's now postcard perfect... There used to be a few large rocks that people took photos on these have been removed and the beach is now... More

We went to this beach with high expectations. It was very nice but feel that there are better alternatives. Drive in was very easy and we got a parking spot in the car park with no problems. Food delivery is a really easy service and not unreasonably priced. Umbrella and sun beds were €15 which was very expensive. The couple... More

Beautiful beach! In summer packed with people but if you come late afternoon you will not only enjoy the best sunlight of the day but there will be less people
