A quiet place lacking in atmosphere.

Minimal.

 Nightlife

None

 Beach

A breathtakingly beautiful little bay (this is where the beach scenes in the movie Alexis Zorbas were filmed) as well as a longer, almost deserted sandy beach.

 Additional comments

Stavros is worth considering as a base but it is really best to have a car.
