This bay has an arresting red cliff promontory at the end of a white stone and pebble beach and not much else. There is a steep and difficult climb down to the beach through a narrow gully at the end of a steep goat track. Winter rains carve deep ruts into the path and even the goats tremble at the prospect of clambering down to the stony shoreline. Remarkably, a beach taverna pops up on the shore during July and August, though how is beyond me. Nearby archaeological excavations have unearthed the site of ancient Ikos with evidence of the oldest known prehistoric habitation in the Aegean but there is little see. Ugly cement blocks have been dumped at one end of the beach, obviously to spoil the view.
