Climbing next to a beach! Even though you pass a very dirty beach on the approach (which could be much cleaner if anyone collected some bottles) "The Beach" is clean. So pack your shorts and bikinis! The rock quality is good but doesn't live up to the high standard of the island so far. Most routes here were equipped between 2009 and 2014 and especially the hard routes haven't seen as much traffic. So mind the possibility of falling rock!
Starting at the very steep concrete road near Skalia village (37.0415, 26.9481) drive upwards to and past the col (About 250 m asl). After the 5th and last hairpin turn on your way down, you reach a gravel path to the left. (37.0515, 26.9572) There's room for scooters to park next to the concrete road and you will often times see a lot of them already standing there, because it's the same spot as for Secret Garden.
Walk down the gravel path for 30 metres and take a left turn onto the narrow, gently desecending path north-west. After reaching "the trash beach" (If you want to feel better about it take a big trash bag with you and collect some bottles) continue to the left along the shoreline. Walking time: 20 minutes.
