This is an interesting archaeological site, in very good state. It is well worth the walk from Makronissos beach.

Not a very big site but worth seeing all the same. Area around the tombs is paved so easy to walk around

Very interesting if you are into history and archaeology. Just a small site but very accessible. Just think of the stories that could be told at this site. Good for a short visit!

2000 year old tombs to explore. Interesting information board in English but would have liked more info. Half an hour or so to explore. Would not make a special trip. Take it in during a visit to the beach. Fenced but not gated.

When told that this place was next to our hotel I thought great, but when I visited I was disappointed to see it wasn't a large area with very little information,

The tombs are about 3 minute walk from the beach. There are natural steps made from rocks which you walk down and then into the tomb. Not much in the tomb though as it is eerily quiet. Still interesting though and worth a look.
