Family beaches for small and “big” children!
1. Batsi beach
The central beach of Batsi has golden sand and trees, and therein lies our hotel. It is ideal for families with children, windless and organized, while swimming overlooking the houses of your traditional settlement gives an amazing feeling. That is why it is the beach for night dives. The beach is wide with shallow waters making it ideal for young children.

To the left of the island’s capital, as we look towards the sea lies the beach of Neiborio. It is organized, with shallow waters and sand, ideal for young children. In the middle of the beach stands locally known as the rock “Tourlos” that separates the beach in two. The beach has a unique view of the majestic peninsula of Chora, the famous St. Thalassini chapel built on a rock, the Square of the Unknown Sailor, and Tourlitis lighthouse.
Crowded beaches … it’s like a party!
