Agios Sostis is on the northern part of the island, away from the center, and therefore remains unspoiled and mostly uncrowded. It’s no longer tourist-free, but outside the busier months of July and August it can be rather quiet. It's a nudist-friendly beach, but if you don’t want to be in the sun for too long, you need to bring your own umbrella. Also don’t forget water and snacks, as there are no facilities.
The northern location means it can be windy and the waves stronger than in the south of the island, but you may also be lucky to find the water calm and perfect for swimming.
It's a beach for everyone, but it's more frequented by young straight couples.
How to Get to Agios Sostis Beach
There are no buses to Agios Sostis, so you’ll need a car. Parking is about a 5- to 10-minute walk from the sand.
