  • Notes:
    Papa Nero is a large and beautiful beach in the popular Agios Ioiannis resort on the east coast of Pelion. The part of the beach nearest the town is not such a bright place to swim, being overrun by people, summer camp children that are escorted there every day, and other annoyances that can prevent you from enjoying your day at the beach. But walk a little farther south and the beach opens up into a wide expanse of sand and bliss. The long walk in the sand is what keeps the crowds from spreading farther than the first hundred meters of the beach, which is lucky for those who go into the trouble to walk a little farther.

    Since it's pretty far to get back to the restaurants, bring our own water and food if you plan to spend the day.
RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
