A quiet, wonderful, rocky beach. One of the many hidden spots for swimming near the extreme nature of the island in the area of Akrotiri. The beach is not very large and it consists of sand with pebbles and also with larger stones on it. It is just 800m from the main Akrotiri road and there is a restaurant on the beach among the several cave houses called varkadies (used to host fishing boats during the winter). On Mesa Pigadia it is a little bit more quiet than on some of the other beaches because it is more out of the route.
