4 = Very good. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = Good. We would choose it for swimming among other beaches if we were in the area
2 = Average. We could go for swimming again if we happened to be in the area

  • Snorkeling:
    Good snorkeling site on the south end where the rocks begin
  • Notes:
    The Hotel at the north end of the beach dominates the hill with its "eye-sore" design and the fancy little wagon that takes bathers up and down the hill. It also dominates the north end of the beach with several floating contraptions offered for sports and games. The most annoying aspect of the hotel though is its PA system that comes live every so often with announcements that can be heard all the way to the other end of the beach, and even up on the hill at the South end.

    This hill on the South end of the beach is host to an interesting archaeological site. There are signs at the beach pointing to it, but they signs later on have been knocked down. To find it, follow the signs from the beach, and after the first left into the gravel road, take the first right up the hill. It does not look like much of a road, but this is the one to climb up to the archaeological site (you will also notice the standing polls that once held the signs pointing to the right.

    Visitors' Reports

    I stayed at Karavostasi Beach for a few weeks with friends in 1993.  We had a fantastic time enjoying the beautiful warm sea and the fun hospitality at 'Tommy's Bar'  - I would recommend all travellers to take the time to visit this beach. --Louise P.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
