We walked past this one morning and had to go back the next morning to see if we had missed something... Basically we had not. It´s interesting enough, but I wouldn't make a big deal to go out of my way to see it. It...More
Not sure what all the fuss is about. Apart from a causeway to the uninteresting Kolokothi Beach we could not see anything historical in view. Some stagnant lagoons and more plastic debris on the shoreline than you would want to see anywhere. I am a...More
