As no-one was able to answer my query, and as I have now visited the island, I must reply to it myself, for the benefit of anyone else who wants to know.
If you are on foot, the beaches near to the town are popular with local and visiting Greeks, especially Katsouni and Spitalia, but if you walk for about 20 minutes eastwards Lazareta was little used when we were there, although you may need to cover up if a family comes to this beach. We saw one other naturist couple, one solo nude male and a nude camping family use this area during our stay. (If you have seen the video on the internet of all the wild campers here in 2011, they had gone.)
To find the beach follow the road eastwards from the town to the far end of the Heliport where you drop down onto a little path along the low clifftops that leads to the wide bay of Meghali Ammos with the disused? power station behind it. Continue around the back of this beach to a white chapel on a rise ahead of you. Just past this is the wide bay of Lazareta. In the first corner of the beach there is a narrow sandy cove with shade all day, you reach this with a little paddle or you can walk down the rocks if you are agile. The sun goes off this beach at 17:00 (June). Next to it is a wider cove also reached with a paddle or down the rocks, with shade from a rock after 16:00. Young textile Greeks sometimes gathered here. Then at the far end of the main bay there is a walk over low rocks and a little paddle to an isolated sand beach which is more private, but it has no shade all day.
If you have a car or moped you can reach further beaches where you are almost certain to be alone, but be aware that the island gas station is closed (2012) so you need to come with a full fuel tank or find an islander who will sell you a little of his private supply.
