The Porto Carras main beach is part of the Porto Carras resort and they have strict control about who can access this beach. It is a first-rate beach with ‘Blue Flag’ status and on the Blue Flag website site is called Porto Carras “Blue Flag 1”, since the resort has two such beaches. This beach is north of the marina and in reality is a continuation of the Neos Marmaras City beach.
The beach is well organized with the usual sun-beds and umbrellas and because it is a 5-star resort, there are many extras such as a restaurants, toilets, spa center, playground and endless water sport possibilities. Normally you can only use this beach if you stay at the hotel.
The beach has sensational soft sand that is carried into the water for a soft sea-bottom. The water depth is not shallow but gradually gets deeper so it is also a good swimming beach.
What’s great about Porto Carras main beachWonderful soft sand and beach organization. Not crowded.
And what’s not…Not open to the public.
Through the Porto Carras resort gate and to the parking. This beach is north of the marina. Otherwise there is access from the Neos Marmaras beach.
