It is situated in the SW side of Astypalaia, just a few km southern of Kaminakia beach. On the beach you will find a few sun beds and umbrellas as well as a cantine. Beware of the weather as Vatses beach is open to winds.
Steno, as the local townspeople refer to it, divides Astypalaia into the eastern part known as the "Inner Island" and the western part known as the "Outer Island". The concrete road towards the "Inner Island" stretches past the successive beaches "Marmaria", "Steno", "Plakis" and the "Blue Limanaki" until it reaches Analypsi or Maltezana after a total of 9 Km.
