I'm really happy, that i decided to take this trip.
We went there with my husband and we took with us our 10-year old son. i was a bit worried of my son, but he was very brave and really thankful, that we took him with us! We hiked there in August 2013, the temperature was really hot, + 35! We all had really good hiking shoes, we had hats, water and snacks. It's very important to have water, specially with hot weather. We took a lot of pictures, the views are amazing.
I suggest to take with you flip-flops and swimwear to go to the beach after the trip. In the beach there is very-very hot sand and you can't be there barefoot to go to the water. But there are some good tavernas and you can have a nice cold ice-cream or milkshake there.
