We took a quad up as its a very long walk up hill. However you get there it's well worth it. Stunning views of the sea on the way. Its a sheer drop with no barriers so great care is needed to look down. The...More

Highly recommended a visit a long rough road and then a track through the woods leads you to the beautiful views and the monastery . From there we went right along the corfu trail back to the track and then Kavos

It's a tough walk on a hot day especially if you go on the the secret beach but well worth it. We got bitten up like crazy by vicious mosquitoes so prepare for that!

Visited the Monastery, was more of a ruin. Long walk to get there but definitely worth the walk to see the amazing views on the way up to the monastery

The walk to the monastery is fantastically scenic, I would certainly recommend sensible footwear and not flip flops. There are several vantage points along the route that offer some of the most fantastic views you could ask for. The trip is certainly worth it just...More
