Glykys Kolimbos beach (Sweet Kolymbos)

Glykys Kolymbos beach, situated in the Asterousia Mountains, is renowned for its spectacular geological formations that appear as stripes in the water, as well as its three interconnected caves. With the largest cave reaching 20 meters in height, the other two resemble swimming pools. At the eastern tip of the beach, a stone bridge forms, while access is mainly by boat due to the difficulty of approaching the beach from the mainland. However, one can also access it through a steep ravine at the western end of the beach, located under a small sheepfold. This route is usually taken on foot from the adjacent beach of Ornios, along the rugged cliffs with their natural arches. On top of the point where the dirt road ends, a unique natural balcony offers an incredible view of the sea. The beach derives its name, meaning ‘sweet water beach’, from the underwater springs that gush fresh water.
