Along the peninsula Kavo Sidero (starting from Analoukas), there are several small secluded beaches. One of them is Mavros Kavos (or Hohlakia) which is accessed by a dirt road. It is generally wavy and you will almost be alone. Another small bay called Magatzedes is formed a bit lower, also accessed by car. Continuing to the west, at the position of the former fish tanks (operated till 2016), there is the nice bay of Atzikiari, accessed through a dirt road.
