The island offers a variety of sandy and pebbled beaches. Choices range from popular and organized beaches like Agia Marina, Agia Paraskevi, Agioi Anargyri or Vrellos, to the very quiet and exclusive little bays reachable only by sea with private means. Within easily negotiated distances lay a multitude of beaches on the coast of the Peloponnese.
