    Found this beach by mistake, we spent a lovely day there the downfall was the Oil Tanker but if left soon after we arrived. The beach was lovely and clean a bit of rubbish in the sea but a lady was consistently cleaning it with a fishing net. We really enjoyed our peaceful day, then disaster my husbands feet were covered in oil. Surely you could place a boon of some description to stop the oil hitting the beach, also maybe fine the Oil Tanker owners. Sadly I do not think we will be going again we will probably go to Stavros Beach instead.
