Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April – October, 09:00 – 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season. The beach also offers disabled access, including a special wheelchair at the lifeguard tower to help disabled persons enter the sea with assistance from the lifeguards. Moreover, an innovative system (Seatrac) that offers autonomous full access to the sea for the disabled is also installed on the beach.

The pier of Enaerios is popular with anglers, and its square offers sheltered benches in a grassy area with lush trees. The beach is also a good starting point for exploring the area further, with plenty to see and do, just a short step away from its sands.

Access is easy by foot, bike, bus or car, with a pedestrian zone and cycling lanes, as well as car-parking facilities.
