Captain Kostas Prasinos, the ferryman, will leave his passengers at Deti point (the only settlement on the island) just in time for lunch at Giannis’ and Sofias tavern.
Giannis leaves everyone to camp freely on his field, which is great, since by law free camping is prohibited. If you hit the walking trail you will end up in the great beach, Pezoulia Рabout 30 min. walk away.
The other bigger beach, Nero (Greek for water), provides shade with a few trees, like the second palm tree on the island.
