About 200 meters from the port is the beginning of the beach Agios Theologos (Saint Theologian). It is a sandy beach which is very popular on weekdays with the locals because they can take a quick dive, refresh themselves and go on with the ir daily duties. There is a row of snack bars along the beach making it very convenient for tourist s on cruise boats, or day trippers from nearby islands who don't have a lot of time: they can swim eat and leave. At the end of the beach there is fenced of section with a sign saying that this was the spot that saint john baptized the first Christians on the island in approximately 95AD, apparently there is a spring that runs under the beach to the sea, making that section of the beach extra refreshing. Five meters onwards you will find the church of St John (on the other side of the beach) . This is where the new marina begins.
Psili Ammos is a secluded sandy beach with turquoise waters, accessible only by boat (a 45 minutes boat trip from Skala) or by bus to Diakofti and then walking for about 20-30 minutes through a path that leads to the beach. There is a tavern that separates the beach in two parts, one of them being used by nudists.
