Marpounda is one of the quietest beaches in the island before Great Mourtias. The beach consists of pebbles and black sand and the pine forest leads to the sea. It is organized with umbrellas, deck chairs and a tavern.
For many, this is considered the most significant area in the northern side of the island because of its rare wild beauty with beautiful small and secluded beaches. The Megali Ammos is the largest of the small beaches of the bay and consists of white pebbles and fine yellow sand in some places.
