Vasilis Paradise beach is quite narrow and tiny, because it is primarily characterized by large rocks. Between the rocks the sea is quite shallow, and depending from actual natural conditions there can be exist a small shore. Near the cliffs there grow some pines which provide some shade for visitors, and all for those who don’t want to swim here. This place is organized very simple, in the shade of the pines there are just a few tables and seats for the passengers of the excursion boats.
The famous Apella beach is about 800 meters away from Vasilis Paradise beach, but the swim to each other is not recommended due to the currents of the sea. The other nearest place is Kyra Panagia beach about 4 kilometers away on the sea, these are also not connected by roads.
