2 kilometres north of Kalathas lies Tersanas beach, a nice shallow little sandy beach in a cove with turquoise green and clear water. The beach is mainly visited by families with children, mostly Greek families with really small children. Tersanas is suitable for those who do not want to be crowded with other tourists. A taverna with a palm leaf roof is located directly on the beach, you hardly need to get out of the water. Here are also some hotels for those who want to stay overnight.
