A well hidden paradise that is not so easy to reach, but surely it’s worth the adventure, if you like to visit non-touristic places. You firstly need a car to get there. The views from the top where you park the car are breathtaking. Then follow the descending rocking path that leads to the beach. The route is quite hard, so not suitable for kids and elderly people.

Make sure you wear appropriate hiking shoes and have all your belongings in a backpack to keep your hands free. It is hard to descend the steep path carrying stuff. There are no food stalls, bars or sunbeds. Bring your own food and water with you. If you visit in July / August period get as early as you can to avoid the crowd. Surely it does not have much space for more than 30 – 40 people to lay on the beach. 
Tip: This website shows how to get to the beach step by step with photographs,

The houses, made of local natural stone and red soil, have been renovated and restored into guest houses with respect to the nature, without losing their traditional architecture. Each house is above one another and the roof of the lower one is used as the balcony of the upper one.
