In keeping with this there are many high quality hotels, shops and restaurants lining the sandy beach that fringes the village.

The beach itself has thick, white sand and pebbles with emerald, crystal clear waters and is one of the award winning beaches in Pelion of the prestigious Blue Flag for cleanliness.

The hotels and rented accommodation available have an array of styles and amenities for every type of holidaymaker, and the restaurants offer fresh fish from the area and an array of traditional dishes and local Pelion fare.
