Been there on a Monday morning. Difficult road, 2 km are dirt road, but you can made it with a family car. Continue down the dirt road until it is paved with stone and go all the way down the last parking place. From here you can walk up to the Kastro - or down to the beach - where... More

Need a car and the road if you can call it that is narrow steep and very bumpy. Once parked it is quite a walk on uneven ,rocky steep in parts path. Not for the unfit as a lot of climbing involved. No shelter from the heat and you will need to take water but worth the walk for the... More

Visited Kastro as part of a boat trip. We didn't have time to see it all so went back when we hired a jeep. Its a really interesting place to visit and has some beautiful views. Well worth a visit.

Phew! We went on a particularly hot day and I found the trek just a bit too much for me. We went there in our jeep and managed the journey quite well. There are some fantastic views on the way and to the cape. I must admit that I stayed by the entrance down to the beach whilst my husband... More

If you are going to Kastro you have to enjoy lunch at the small cafe at the beach next to Kastro. The way down is a bit rocky but the view and the food are worth the walk. The owners are very friendly and they make really good food.

Visited this beach on the north of the island when we had a car. It has a very steep road going down to it , but then you need a donkey to get you down a very poor/ rough track to a very small beach that has rough sea if there is any wind. It has a few (broken) sun... More

We drove to Kastro in our jeep and walked over the cliffs to the fantastic old castle. Many visitors arrived by boat as another option. Well worth a visit

Fifteen years ago we discovered this little treasure and every year since we have taken a day trip here,by road is fun as well as boat but the highlight is the superb food that the small taverna produces. No menu they tell you what is on that day and it never fails superb fish and calamari Greek salad with the... More

Worth the effort, we took our scooter to the nearest car park to avoid a very long walk in 80 degrees+. We should have taken water but stopped at lovely basic café on way back.Views stunning but didn't go to the beach which was very busy with trip boats.
