This island is full of interesting and beautiful landscapes. The old sulphur mines beach is no exception to that. The drive can be tiring but totally worth it. I would prioritize other beaches with easier access and visiting the sulphur mine beach if there is...More

I would only recommend coming here in a 4x4 as there is a stretch of road that has a steep incline and the road condition has detoriated to a point that a front wheel drive car wont make it. We only made it out thanks...More

Visited here as part of a 4WD tour of the island. It's one of the most unusual beaches on the island, backed by old abandoned sulphur mines. You can check the mines out - but don't go too far. The beach doesn't have much shade...More

Firstly you need to get there jeep, 4×4 or one car high enough not to hit the rocks underneath. It is a dirty 20 mins roadtrip, is some parts a bit dangerous, after Zefiria. The view of the old sulfurmine totally worths it and if...More
