Pirgos, otherwise known as the Tower, is located in the northwest of Gavdos, at a distance of 6km from the Karave port. It boasts two stunning sandy beaches, which are discretely divided by some rocks and remain largely unspoiled by any kind of major tourist infrastructure. The beach is enclosed by high cliffs and there is no natural shade, making it a great destination for campers. To get to Pirgos, one must take the 2-2.5 hour trek from Ambelos village on foot, or take a boat. Nearing the beach by the steep path from the north end of the bay requires caution. Once there, the crystal blue waters and wild coastal scenery will stay with you forever. Don’t forget to bring your own food and water.
