Liked: Chilled out atmosphere during the day

Disliked: It was disappointing to find out that the white lines are actually painted on the ground

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Romantic getaway Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: If you're young, make sure you go to the end of Mylopantas beach to the FarOut Beach Club. It's got everything you'd want

Liked: Great atmosphere, not necessarily rich in historical sights, but if you're a young person it can't be competed with. Great activities in the daytime, lots of nightlife without being rammed and tacky, and cheap too.

Disliked: If you were looking for a Greek Island to learn about ancient Greece it's not the one for you.

Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Partying / nightlife

Customer Travel Tip: Definitely rent a scooter or a quad.. The island isn't that big so you can travel around it and my god.. The scenery is spectacular.. Driving license required and generally the company keep your passport until you leave the island.. Also, for girls, don't bring heels! The dress code isn't dressy- it's chilled. Don't make the same mistake as me being two pairs of heels!

Liked: How relaxing it is! Yes you have the crazy party life.. But during the day everyone is chilled.. There's no crowds of people so you don't have to be worried about your hand bags being robbed or anything.. It's totally a chilled atmosphere

Disliked: A small bit pricey!
