Tholos is located 26km east of Agios Nikolaos and 4km north of the village Kavousi. Locals might also call it Kavoussi beach, due to the nearby village. The beach is formed at the exit of a fertile valley, surrounded by huge olive groves and vine groves. The region has been touristically developed, but very mildly, being ideal for a relaxing holiday.

The beautiful beach of Tholos is pebbly and sandy on its west side. There are several tamarisk trees near the beach where you can find shade. There are several rooms, hotels and taverns around. The sea is usually wavy, though the intensity of the wave is somewhat mitigated by the isle of Psira (i.e. lice) found off the coast of the bay. When the sea is wavy, quite often, the waters get a characteristic light blue color.
