  • Yesterday have run through the Gorge, which is a backdrop. Due to the journey over a dirt road it was not overrun as at other beaches. Any more is going on in the stronger months (holiday), because indeed boats in the Bay drive. In September, it is also good to do in June/July / August you should leave any early, relatively exposed to the Sun as it for the not so early bird. From the monastery to take ca 4 km gravel up to the last parking. The agio Farago is signposted from here. From there, it is only about 2, 5 km to the beach/Bay through the beautiful gorge. Anyway worth a trip!

  • This beach is very nice with great sea. It's located at the end of a short trekking (only a few minutes). The road ti the start of the trekking is not perfect, but is drivable with no particular issue...  read more »
  • You arrive at the monastery, there you take the road which leads to the bottom, you drive them to a T-crossing comes you exit turn right, then right at some point a confluence, this you continue until a fence come on with door, you also can not go. The road is however very bumpy there. As always the ausgtrockneten Riverbed after. Until you come to the Church, there is a Brunnnen with drinking water. Then you can see the Bay soon. A shady spot can be found also throughout the day. Also very nice for climbers. It's very nice there, by the increase of the popularity among the tourists always they unfortunately. Everywhere is rubbish on the way there, we found even a diaper in the water. And the Church is also outside littered with all possible beach equipment (too bad!) So, keep Please clean the nature.
