Divided by rocks into two sections with a snaky path leading from one part to another, the beach is lined by pine trees along the path, and there is a beach bar and few lovely taverns.

Mylopotamos beach is very popular in the summer and it attracts both youth and families - so be warned! It's best visited out of season, when you might find you have this little slice of paradise all to yourself.
