The island's main port has a dull, narrow little beach of shingle and course sand that you can only access through a line of tavernas.
To get to the sand you have to run a gauntlet of taverna touts. The touts are friendly enough (friendly enough to park a table on the sands below if you ask), but the constant exhortations to eat can be wearisome. The setting is pleasant enough, with steep, wooded hills on three sides and a fine view of the bay.
There is good swimming to be had in the clear, if rocky waters. To the north of the quay is a cliffside footpath that offer dramatic views from the cliffs. A rustic bit of rope fencing is all there is between you and the surf below so hang on to the kids if you venture along there. The path leads past a couple of pleasant cliffside bars and cafes to the hotel complexes perched on the promontory.
