Agiofaraggo Beach

HOMESIGHTSAgiofaraggo Beach

Agiofarago beach

The beach of Agiofarago is located  at the exit of the homonym Gorge of Agiofarago. To get there you must either cross the gorge, by easy hiking of about 30-50’, or catch a boat from Matala.

We definitely recommend the first option, as the route within the vertical walls of the gorge is breathtaking. On the way you will see the large caves were some hermits still live and the chapel of St. Anthony, with a well outside.

The beach at the exit of the gorge is stunning, with fine pebbles and clear blue waters, which are usually very calm. Vertical cliffs surround the beach, on where you might see hermits praying. The beach is ideal for camping, but you must carry all your stuff in the gorge.

Of respect to ascetics that monks here, naturism is prohibited. If you have your sneakers with you, in the afternoon you should climb the cliffs on the east and reach the top. The view there is fantastic.
