Argassi Beach  (138 Comments)
Argassi BeachOften criticised, mainly because in many places there is no beach! At least the water is shallow with a sandy bottom making it good for bathing.
Dafne Beach  (28 Comments)
Dafne BeachA beautiful beach and an important nesting ground for the Loggerhead Sea Turtles, accessed via a long and bumpy dirt road. Definitely one for the rental car!
