Gylisma

This, also known as Afratolakkoi, is quiet and remote enough. It is pebbly, with deep and clear water, and used chiefly by the locals. It is not organized and so lacks infrastructure – though some tavernas and rent rooms exist nearby.

And after that Xotikospelio.

Xotikospelio

Within a small and rock bay is the beach of Xotikospelio (the Cave of the Sprite): clear waters, pebbles and rocks mean it is a good choice for those keen on diving and spearfishing. The beach is not developed, so purchase your necessities before visiting. Once there, take a look at the small caves on the beach, from which its name is derived.

A kilometer or so off the next beach is that of Keramoti.
