There is a taverna called Taverna Mermaid Island at one end of the beach. If you bring your own food and drink, you need to pay attention because there are plenty of goats that want to steal your food.

You can go to the beach by taxi boat from both Chora Sfakion and Loutro. You can also walk to the beach, but not if you have a fear of heights, like me. Once I tried to hike to the beach from Chora Sfakion, but I had to give up because it was just too steep for me. I saw others who also returned. It is said that it is less scary to walk from Loutro.
