The streets are scattered with small shops and local bakeries. The hotels are small and family run, offering mostly apartments and studios to rent without food. The resort has one ATM.
Potos has three beaches. The most visited is right next to the promenade, with fine sand. Almost all of it is occupied with sunbeds and umbrellas. The other two beaches are sandy mixed with gravel and large stones, so aqua shoes are desirable. The water everywhere is very clean and transparent, the bottom is visible even at great depth. In some places the sea suddenly goes deep.
On the beach there are courts for volleyball and football. Boats and pedal boats are available to rent.
