After a small rocky road. you will arrive on the sand dunes of Gomati. Excellent point of view with a lot of birds. Dunes are very pleasant, you can work, take pictures. The nature ie really present. I recommend this spot.

It's very interesting to see it, the sand is always moving. Take water and sun protection. Attention: use the road from the village DAFNI - Δάφνη, it's much better than the other way even it's longer!

Looks like a very big beach without water nearby. Very small actually. Could be missed by the way. Not so worthy.
