This is a beautiful beach with clean waters and the shipwreck definitely adds to the picture. There is also a great beach bar and tavern.

You can get to the beach and there's a sandbar so you can walk out to the wreck. Astonishing boat, with a smuggler's history.

Nice beach, good for children since the water is very clean and goes down slowly. Scenic view, nice restaurant at the south corner. My favourite beach in Gytheio area.

Pleasant beach, good for a swim, long beach walk and enjoy this shipwreck. Nice landmark in this area. Very pleasant restaurant nearby with sunbeds under the palm trees. Fun for a daytrip.

Never been in a beach before where you could walk and see a shipwreck. Cool to see and take pictures. Although it’s forbidden people swim/snorkle close to the ship, although there’s nothing to find.

We didn't know in advance that the shipwreck was there. It was a nice surprise. It is a quite impressive views both from the cliff when reaching the beach from the south and also from the beach
