The drive down to the beach can be very scary. Going down is worse than going back due to the risk of skidding on the gravel if you go to fast and need to brake against the gravity of the descent. The road is so...More

We walked from the beach to the waterfall and it was a great walk. And the parking on the beach is perfectly in the shade.

Some gorges are dry and stony. This is something else: subtropical, green trees and flowers, small stream which did not give trouble to walk (in July!). Few wet paths but if you don´t mind a little mud. There is some up and downs and curves...More

At this time of year do not expect a lush flow We walked along the ditch. The flow was minor. We started from above and it may have been a mistake. The flow may have been stronger in the early spring.

Short walk continuing on the main road till you reach the car park; very pleasant walk down a single- track...More

Beautiful walk, few rocks to jump over but safe and fairly easy. We saw family with kids on the way. I would recommend to go from the morning if you are driving, because it is a fair walk.

Beautiful gorge in Greece, very lush vegetation. Some Palmtrees I've seen there I've never seen elsewhere in Greece. It looks more ke a tropical garden, than in Greece. 2 hrs. Down and 2hrs. Up, so not a hike for the heat of the summer.
