the best is the walk to the beach
Sep 2020
The third beach near Iraklia's main settlement, after Agios Georgios and Livadi, is the one at Vorini Spilia in the bay of that name. To get here one takes the wide path towards Agios Athanassios and the caves, but after about 10 minutes from the harbour one branches off to the right by the chapel of Agios Ioannis onto the path marked No 8. As it says on a sign it takes 35min to walk from here. Especially in the last part there are plenty of rocks, so good footwear is advisable.

For me the walk was the best part. The beach itself looks nice from far, isolated and quiet with never too many visitors. Seen from close-up one becomes aware that the beach as well as the approach into the water is a mixture of sand and stones as well as plastic. The beach faces north, towards the prevailing winds, that bring with the waves also plenty of litter. Unlike the other two beaches mentioned, that have the same exposure, here obviously hardly any cleaning ever takes place.

What I didn't see by the beach or anywhere nearby was a cave, so I was wondering about the name, which means in Greek: 'northern cave'. Also the hiking map of Iraklia by Terrain has no sign for a cave here, unlike at the two famous ones of Agios Ioannis and Polyphemos far in the south.

Rare beauty
Jul 2019 • Couples
The landscape is simply amazing but the plastic that litters the beach and particularly the finer particles that have gathered where the waves roll onto the beach make it a poor sight. It could have been the most beautiful beach on the island but as it is it would make a good poster for a campaign to ban plastic.
The path that leads there is quite rough so I would recommend wearing proper shoes, not flip flops. People should go there to see with their own eyes what our everyday habits do to nature.

The beach is often covered by wind blown sea debris which is cleared once per season. The sand is plentiful and the water warm when not too windy. Need to walk from Agios Georgios on paths that cross some steep rocks as you near the beach. No services or shade. Hike from town takes about 35 minutes.

Beautiful, though dirty
Jul 2018 • Couples
The place is amazing, but very dirty. The currents bring all the rubbish from Aegean sea. Recommended for the view. The walk is for 30 min. Needs proper shoes because of the stones. Follow signs for path 8. The beggining of the path is covered by bushes
