The sandy beach of the village is extremely long, it starts from outside the city of Pirgos and it ends in Kiparissia, approximately 50 km of sand with pine trees and dunes.

The village has two central roads that lead to two different parts of the beach which are organized with umbrellas and sun beds, courtesy of the beach bars operating in the area. For those who like privacy and adventure, there are several paths in the forest that lead to secluded areas of the beach.
