There are two ways to reach the beach: - by boat which is not timely flexible. - by foot which we choose: the way down is pretty hard as there is no regular way or stairs, it is almost like climbing down the hill. It...More

A unique place which became crowded. Here you can enjoy a bath in the river which flows into the sea and than try a bath into the sea along the same sandy beach. You can also wander on the trail which winds along the palm...More

A marvelous spot, not very easy to reach, and quite difficult to escape. The minibus leaves you at about 1km from the steep descend towards the beach (a path with steps, some 15 min). If you are coming from Moni Preveli Monastery, you must walk...More
