Beautiful place

worth a trip by bike from the hotel to see this beautiful landscape and all the colours of the sea. Go up to the castle and the view is even more stunning!

Beautiful beach with excellent safe swimming. No facilities but who wants them, a naturally stunning place.

Well worth seeing this at sunset. There is nothing else there so unless you bring your own, wouldn't plan on staying long.

We stayed up at the Gialova end of the beach as we wanted to use the beach beds but if you are more self sufficient in your beach tastes there is loads of scope for you to spread out and be more alone. The restaurants in Gialova were in a lovely setting.

Accessed through Gialova and some narrow lanes, bring everything you will need as there is absolutely no amenities in this natural, sandy, clean water "omega" or horsehoe shaped bay. Towering over this beach is the 13th century ruins of a Frankish castle and below it Nestor's cave. You can walk to both of these if you bought good walking shoes... More

Walked here through Gialova Lagoon which was just delightful. Beach is 100% natural so take all you need with you and DON'T leave anything behind. Wonderful way to spend a peaceful day on the beach

A bit hard to find, lots of locals there during the weekend, absolutely no service (restaurants, sundbeds, etc) which was a bit unfourtunate when we arrived and was dying for asomething to eat. Worth a visit though.

Thankfully the weather was helpful and we enjoyed an amazing day at the beach where we had a "wow' experience! Although in early June, it was fairly crowded. Fyi, there is no shadow at all so be prepared!

Voidokilia beach is one of the most amazing places in Greece! If you are looking for a calm and peaceful beach, far from the city, this is the perfect beach for you. Beautiful beach with blue crystal clear waters and soft sand.Worth a full day trip!
