Punta: The beach you go by car and looks like an island
Punta beach is just before Aegio and the route there will seem very quick and easy. It is a very clean beach with turquoise waters in some parts. It has pebbles and deep cool waters so if you are the type of person who prefers very hot, you should enter slowly.
In fact, it gets deep quite sharply to two meters from the coast. You should keep that in mind if you’re going with little kids. It is not a completely organized beach so you better bring your equipment. If you like the natural shade, Punta Beach has enough trees that will give you their coolness. If it’s a weekend, make sure you get there in time to get the spot you like.
