Marmara beach

Marmara beach

 

Marmara beach is located in a small bay at the exit of the gorge of Aradena. Its remoteness, spectacular surroundings, clear water and sea caves nearby have attracted people to it for many years. The excellent small taverna built above the beach brought even more people and now that there are regular boats coming from Loutro and you don't have to walk all the way anymore (about an hour from Loutro) it has unfortunately become a little too busy, especially in mid-summer. But if you visit in the morning hours or in the spring when it is still quiet you will still understand why it has become such a popular little spot.

Size of beach: 45 m

Crowds: because it is so small it can easily get very crowded
