The monastery of Panagia Kalamiotissa is located on the second tallest monolith in Europe after that of Gibraltar. After hiking for about an hour and a half, through a path quite demanding, uphill and steep, but with a great view, you will reach the top. The landscape that surrounds the monastery is surreal.

A very nice beach with golden color sand and clear blue waters. The path going down is a bit difficult, but it makes the descent even more beautiful. And since the beach has no shade, we recommend you to bring an umbrella with you.
