Head north along the seafront from the clock tower, away from the centre, and you’re immediately in smaller Harani Bay. Traditionally a base for shipbuilding, it still holds assorted beached boats, along with its own crop of bars and tavernas.

The closest beach to Gialos, Nos, lies around the next headland, 500m north from the clock tower. Access to this narrow strip of gravel is controlled by a taverna and bar, but it's a great spot for a swim, nonetheless.
