Patelia has a long track to beach. Ok for walk or moped too narrow for a quad bike.
This beach may become more popular as more visitors become aware of the improvements to the road which leads to this north east point of the island. But at the moment you almost have the whole place to yourself - a fabulous private beach !
Park at the top near the church then take the track down to the beach. Your reward is a long strip of large pebbles forming the first part of the beach, but as it continues there is sandy section and along this full length there seem to have recently been planted Tamarisk tree saplings which will doubtless form a windbreak and some shade along the back of the Beach .
At the very furthest point there is a small peninsula which creates a little lagoon and as you can see someone has taken the time to form the sign of a cross from piled up pebbles here, with another like a reflection under the water.
At midday on a July day in 2013 I saw just two other people using the beach here. There are no facilities so bring whatever you will need for the time you intend to spend here.
