Our group of 6 reserved a table at 7:30pm and enjoyed drinks, appetizers, a meal and a wonderful sunset! Perfect outdoor patio right in the heart of the sunset seekers! I highly recommend it!

Stunning place, but before 11am or after 4pm. Long,hot,dusty climb. Historically interesting. The taverna on the beach is essential for pre and post beers.

Nice bit of history here and the views from the top are magnificant. The walk up to the top however, is not for the faint hearted or those with joint problems.

no good for those with disability or walking difficulties otherwise very good. Take plenty of water with you and decent shoes for climbing. Accessed by a rough road or by boat transfer.

amazing place and history, so much bigger than you think! Views spectacular. You can drive right down what looks like a path, so keep going until the end, otherwise its a hell of a walk!
