My boyfriend and I visited Platia Ammos last year in September. The earthquake destroyed most of the stairs, and that is what we saw first when we got to the top of the cliff: there were maybe only 30 steps left (and there used to be about 300 steps, carved on the cliff). I was wearing sneakers, my boyfriend was... More

So, because of very various comment's there, while someone's claim that the access to the beach is possible and others that is not, we decided to take a closer look. And to be honest, it is impossible to reach the beach with slippers, because that could be pretty dangerous while like 200 of stairs are missing, as a consequence of... More

We tried to visit this beach on July 2016. To begin with, the dirt road that leads to it is closed. It is possible however to drive until a certain point and then continue walking (about 600 m). Then we reached the famous staircase and there was a sign indicating that the beach is closed for visitors because of a... More

Well, to enjoy your swimming hear you nees to be young enough to climd all these stairs (and there are many of them), to also get supplies (there is nothing down there) and to not mind the big shingle (no sandy beach there). However, if you like it quiet and in the wild, this scenery and this experience getting down... More

We left our car at the top of the hill and walked down. The road is closed, but you can walk to the point where the stairs start. There's a nice view of the whole beach but you can't get to it because the stairs at the very bottom are gone. Maybe if you had really good hiking shoes, however... More

Imagine Myrtos beach a few decades ago...Secluded and virgin beach with crystal clear waters. The beach was created after an earthquake and I reckon that future earthquakes will make inaccessible in the years to come. Ideal for those who love adventure, isolation and peace. Please note that there are approx. 300 steps - some are in a bad condition and... More

Beautiful spot but due to landslide the road is very poor and the 280 steps have disappeared. Although tempting would not recommend the descent. We decided it was too dangerous and did not attempt although very tempted. What a shame.

- The road to the beach is a dirt track, can be challenging at times. - Be prepared and equipped with snacks, refreshments etc. - 300 steps (the last ones were a bit dodgy) Your effort will be compensated with a stunning landscape. A unique pebbled beach with crystal clear water. Secluded but magic. It is what it is, because... More

We were on a beach search when we attempted to navigate our way to this beach, photo looked amazing an from where the picture was taken it does look amazing. But DO NOT go down the sign posted track to this beach in a hire car!!! It was great big huge rocks and crevices like caverns on the dirt track... More
