Relatively easy hike with striking views of the sea to the southern most tip of Greece. Can be windy. Don't miss the remnants of Roman tiled floors near the parking lot just at the beginning of the hike.

Pleasant two km walk from the parking. Lovely small bay for swimming with shade on the way. Restaurant by parking also offered very good lunch.

A great way to spend a few hours walking out to the Lighthouse. Was very hot when we did it so remember the sun screen, hat and water.
