Lonely Planet review
The sandy beach at Almyros, about 1km south of town, is the best of the town beaches and tends to be quieter than smallish Ammos or Kytroplatia Beach. It can be reached on foot via a coastal path starting at the end of the road just past the stadium. There's not much shade but you can hire umbrellas.
