Beaches that were once serene and peaceful now have blaring music and tourist pubs. But there are relatively quiet gems. Choulakia beach with its large pebbles and granite shapes on the south, (Halara, Plintri, Lino, Lazaros etc.), the majestic capes among hospitable coves (Drapanos , Divounia), abrupt coasts in the northern part of the island (Fanari, Panormos etc.) are interesting to discover.
