As seen from the road it just looks strange but walking up to it really makes it spooky. Take the 15 minutes and stop and see. Not what you normally come to Greece for.

A beautiful endless sandy beach with sand dunes and the ship wreck Dimitrios. It is quite breath taking to sunbathe or to take a swim with the dunes and the shipwreck on the background. The is also a cafe restaurant at the beginning of the beach, with sunbeds.

Does not meet the expectation! It is just for photos and a few minutes stay on the beach. Then continue your journey!!

I was told that besides the famous shipwreck in Zakynthos, this is the only other shipwreck in Greece. As it is situated not very far away from the town of Ghythio, we decided to take a short drive to see it. You can see that Dimitrios was once a magnificent ship and to see the deterioration up close was rather scary, as you can see how fast nature has destroyed this piece of machine. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Perfect if you like a trifle hounted atmosphere for your swim. The water is very accessible, warm to hot, so clear that carretta carrettas have their favorite nesting spots on the shore. No danger if you swim behind the wreck, but if you enter you do it at your own risck. The rust is not polluting as a reviewer wrote: the water is full of life!
Black spots: I detest noisy tavernas on the beach and turists who do'nt consider the garbage bin as an option, trashing the dunes with plastic and tins. I use to collect the garbage in plastic bags I carry with me to the garbage general, and the sorroundig tourists stearing at me with an odd glance. I BELIEVE IN GIVING THE GOOD EXAMPLE, especially if kids are around.
