Smallish town but contains a whole load of different bars, restaurants and shops. Something for everyone! Beach is fairly poor, more pebbles than sand in lots of places, but does have some better spots.

Kardamena beach is a 3km sandy stretch of beach which is fringed by bars and restaurants. In the peak season the beach can get busy however there is always space to lounge on the sand if you move slightly away from the centre. Watersports are plentiful and include banana boats, pedaloes and jetskiing to name but a few.
