It has many beaches, but is at 2-3 km north and northeast. There are sandy beaches and pebble beach’s and organized and isolated beaches, which usually can only go on foot.

Is a village hardly accessible. Somewhere near the village you have to drive down sharply among houses and get to the mini-resort Elli Beach. Right on the beach there is a small hotel about 2 star hotels with restaurant downstairs. Vegetation is abundant; the beach is very small, with gravel large as golf balls, which get hot. Seabed is abrupt. About 5 meters from the shore water already passes your head. In small golf of Liapades Beach you can practice water sports. In general, about 100 meters from the shore you can see moored yachts and small boats, some private, others hired on an hourly or daily basis.

Logas - Peroulades is near in the north-west, close by Cape Drastis.

Got to get a lot of concrete stairs, then another set of wooden stairs, it's easy at the way down, the harder is when to go up, there are many. Left and right stairs are two beaches whoever. There are not very large, but idyllic.
Beaches are located in bays carved by the sea in the huge limestone walls and are furnished with sun beds and umbrellas. From large pieces of rock is built a sort of dam, that sea not "steal" beach, which is quite narrow. Cannot get into the water everywhere you like. Near the dam of stone you can hurt by stones in water. It is not very crowded, is a quiet. Only nervous waves hitting rocks, in places that were beaches are not protected by stone parapets. The water is warm and the sand is fine, almost orange.
