It used to be more private. Now it is a little bit organized... just to an extend to make it suitable for families also! The access is easy and the water crystal clear! Add it in your "to-do" list...

Don't get me wrong, when the wind picks up, shut your eyes if you're lying down! But this beach was wonderful. The water is so clear. We did go snorkelling, not much to see but lovely to be out in the water. We went in...More

One of the gorgeous beaches I have seen. We were lucky with the weather (no wind). Water was warm. Not much other people at the beach, it felt that we are alone in the whole place (of season October 14-21). Recommend.

We couldn’t swim here because the water could have pulled us into the sea. Nobody swam, but you can climb a hill there with a relatively flat rise.

A bit out of the way, this beach is worth the trouble to get there. The road is not easy but the destination compensates you for your efforts. Less crowded than expected, it’s really awesome. Thick sand and deep waters. Very clean. It tends to...More

I've never been here during the day, when for all I know it might be crowded, but I've dropped by on my way back from Matala or something a few times, and it's always lovely in the evening by the far rocks. It's clean and...More

We drove there from Plakias, and Google directed us over an unpaved offroad for kilometers, which was not a tip. Adventurous, but a bit too much to our liking and our rented Seat Mii. Upon return we found out there is also a road with...More

The day we visited Triopetra was a bit windy.. The beauty of the place and the bue of the waters is unspoken.. We had a great time! Think it would have been even better if there was no wind at all!

Spent the whole day here with the family and omg it was amazing. The drive is a bit annoying if you've got motion sickness like me but you get to see some beautiful mountains and scenery at least. Not a sandy beach so for those...More
