    COMMENTS This beach overlooks Koukounaries, as you approach down
    the hill and you are 0.5km from Koukonaries on the left hand side on
    the hill is a small break in the trees. There is parking for only two
    cars on the side of the road. When we saw one car parked there, as it
    was shaded, we parked next to it. When we got out of the car, we
    noticed the break in the trees and a worn path through the foliage.
    We gathered up our wine, towels, sun creams etc and headed down the
    path. It was difficult to get down and took a good 10 minutes, but it
    was worth it in the end. We ended up on a long sand spit, perfect
    white sand, about 100 yards long. The sea was crystal clear and way in
    the distance you could make out people on Koukounaries beach. To the
    left of the beach was a rock headland. On the beach was another young
    couple, who were naked. My boyfriend and I, stripped off and were able
    to spend the day on this lovely beach. Since only two cars could park
    on the road, no one else enjoyed this beach. We swam around the rock
    headland away from Koukounaries and about 500 yards up the road was a
    stone beach frequented by couples, all nude. A very pleasant day.

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.
