We did some jogging around the lagoons and decided to take the hike. We climbed up from the back of the hill (which is less steep than the entrance from the lagoon and the caves) and made our way through the ruins. We were rewarded...More

I wish it could be better maintained . The interior of the castle is filled with wild vegetation . At least there are hiking routes for those who want to descend towards voidokilia .

The walk from Gialova up to this castle and then down to the beach is long and you need to be wearing good walking shoes. Take drinks and food and prepare for a 2-3 hour walk. Tough walk but well worth it

We walked up through the dunes of Voidokilia Beach, past Nestor’s cave and than up to the castle. The walk is very pretty with spring flowers and there are some stunning views. The climb is a bit tricky but nothing a reasonably fit person couldn’t...More

One of the best hikes I've ever done! Start from voidokilia beach, go to the cave and then up the castle. Take the path down and around the mountain and will get you back to the beach. Stunning view!! Don't miss that!

The castle ruins are officially closed to visitors, but the paths leading to the castle aren't blocked off and many people, like us, make the long uphill trek to get there. We hiked to the castle from the western end of Divari Beach (a.k.a. Golden...More

Our visit was in early October. Although the sign at the bottom of the hill said the castle was closed we walked up anyway and found that the large stones above the entrance gate had collapsed and the whole site area was overgrown with weeds...More

My husband and I walked to the old castle via the beautiful Golden Beach. The walk takes about 45 mins and is steep and slippery in parts so wear good shoes. The castle is nothing but old ruins but the view makes it worthwhile. Visit...More

We walked up to the ruins from the Golden Beach side. The sign at the beach said it was a 45-minute walk, which is about right. It was a fairly gradual slope, but as we neared the top it was quite rocky and potentially risky...More
