  • From Matala towards the monastery. From here walked slowly but surely towards the Gorge. Was further than we expected. At the entrance to gorge a surprise a tavern with fresh and coffee. The name Tavern not worthy rather a shebang. Walked the gap in brilliant views of the high rocks. Halfway through a beautiful church with a beautiful cave. Than the magnificent view from the beach with the sea. Definitely worth it and the walk was quickly forgotten. Only we had to also back again.

  • We have let us by taxi to the monastery moni odigitrias for 20 euro. After 9.5 km 9.5 km back and walked back. Speeds 5 hour walk. Beautiful route. Just before the gap a parking lot with tent who drink and bread roll sells. Summers called 135 cars there. Road is sometimes really bad, really only to ride with jeep. Maybe also called panda. The road is not improved. Beach was now quiet. On the way to beach yet a church. You can also rock climbing. Last piece only per foot and not per engine

  • Car - parking are located ca 45 min of Agia Galini on the monastery of Moni Odigitrias. From here it was back a little longer ca 1 hour walk to the sea, da uphill. You can continue but still good 2 km on a gravel road, which is good for large parts also with city. If it gets too rough, can be off the car on the side of the road, so that no passing cars are obstructed. At the end of the road then the last parking, there is also a small kiosk with drinks. Take with water - information that a pump is nearing the beach at the small chapel is misleading, as that it currently does not work. Absolutely made for the walk through the Gorge of rich normal sneaker. Flip-flops are not to recommend because some sharper stones on the dirt road. Great views, after 20-30min of Pebble Beach is reached. Who wants shadow, holds a from the Gorge coming right. From ca 14:00 there is a few meters shadow, what is the other side of the Bay in the blazing sun.
