Small but mighty. With the beach stretching along just 100 meters in a horseshoe shape.

Foneas Beach is pretty secluded, but that’s what gives it ultimate beauty. The cove is protected by the trees surrounding it, but it’s also quite rocky, so be sure to take some beach shoes with you for extra comfort and protection. You can reach the beach by road and simply walk down a forest track to reach it.

The beach does have some facilities, including a cafe and shower, but it may be best to bring your own refreshments if you prefer a wide choice.

Because the beach is pretty wild, it’s not the best for children as the rocks are quite large and can be slippery. However, it’s a stunning beach for adults to spend the day. If you enjoy snorkeling, you’ll find a great experience here too.
