“Don't miss the tomb on top”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I went today (No.v 6, 2012) and it was still glorious...the water was warm enough to swim in. Don't miss the tomb site on top of the cliffs. Just follow the goat bells...up up up...it's not far and is well marked. It added a lot to my trip since I was not able to go to see the palace of Nestor (since the workers there were on strike and closed it) - at least I was able to see SOMETHING.

It is a beautiful beach - the name means belly of the cow.

I met a goatherd, who lept up the trail to the tomb. I was very impressed!

“Astonishing place”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Excellent scenery, nevertheless very shallow waters. There is no shadow, therefore if long time is to be spent there, an umbrella is needed.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Liked - clear and calm waters, surprisingly quiet when we visited
Disliked - need a car to reach (but hence it was so quiet) absolutely no shade and no facilities in the area - you need to go prepared

“Absolutely stunning”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Loved the horseshoe shape, the approach over the dunes and the warm still waters. No facilities there, but then it's not spoilt!

“Fantastic beach”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Voidokilia Beach can be difficult to find but it is really worth the effort. The beach is an arc of sand on to warm sea that is shallow until quite far out, with gentle waves. You will need to take your own shade and refreshments as there are no facilities at the beach.
