Second part

Second part of Small Santa Maria is bigger, unspoiled and therefore quieter. It is situated just few steps away from the organized part, towards the west. You will not find sunbeds and umbrellas here. There is only golden sand, crystal sea and unique nature. Due to those aspects, you will find more local people here than tourists. You should know that this part of Small Santa Maria is also suitable of children.

Small Santa Maria rarely has waves, due to the fact that it is “turned” towards the south. Both parts of the beach are also protected in a bay. Something that characterizes both beaches, from nature’s point of view, are small sand hills. Of course, you can combine your visit on this beach with the “big” Santa Maria, as they are close together.

To reach Small Santa Maria, you can use your own mean of transport. Another choice is by bus which will get you to the “big” Santa. From there you can walk for about 10 minutes. If you are staying in Naoussa village, you can use a bicycle.
