This is a great nudist beach with a good mix of young and older people. The southern end of the beach is mostly for gay men but it doesn’t really make a difference. The beach is generally quiet and peaceful and everyone respects each other. The main beach is quite organized at the northern end with beach chairs and parasols and a great little taverna serving drinks and food in a shaded eating area. The beach gets extremely busy so arriving early is a must if you want to pick a good spot on the beach. There is a good warm dipping pool of sand bottomed water at the very far end with channels to swim further out. The water is crystal clear and perfect for snorkeling as there is a bit of coral and a good selection of fish to see in the nearby rocks.
Access to the water is rocky and can be slippery in a lot of places so take beach shoes. But even if you don’t have sea shoes, you can still manage fine with the rocks if you start to swim in the shallower water, just watch your knees and feet as you swim. As the beach faces east and cliffs are behind it, tends to be calm and the sun disappears from around 5.30pm, so it empties out with just a few dedicated folks staying till late. Mandomate beach is one of the best naturist beaches in Greece and overall, a pleasant and friendly place to relax and spend the day. The beach is a 15–20-minute walk along the sand from the center of Faliraki. Although secluded and tucked away, it is easy to find with good clear signage. Once there not a lot of parking at the beach but plenty a short distance away.
