This quirky little beach property keeps going from strength to strength and is, today, one of our favourite destinations on the island! Owned and managed by Sue and Andrew, their attention to detail is present throughout…from the well appointed and comfortable rooms to the orderly and very good dining. With one of the best beaches on the island on their front door, it is no wonder that Echo Beach is doing well.


One of the best beaches on the island in that it is great for a good proportion of the day. The area of beach that stretches from Paje to the north of the southern area of the coast, is certainly one of the best for both quality and amount of usability….the only drawback is this beach is also popular with the larger Italian resorts and, as such, there has been an increase in beach sellers over the last few years.


Much improved, all the rooms at Echo Beach now have aircon as standard as well as a small balcony and interior decoration. It has made them feel far more homely and inviting and, with use of Zanzibari lamps and "objets" there is a good feel to them.


Of all of the properties at this bracket, due to the width of their plot, it is a refreshing change to have a layout that has a good number of sea view rooms and few with a garden view (or view of the building in front). All located around a good sized pool, and featuring a good (if not stunning) bar and restaurant, Echo Beach have gotten things pretty well right.

Good beach, great food, good size and decoration in rooms

Still not sure of the bar/restaurant area, beach is getting busier
