Skotini beach at Ravdoucha

0 (0 Reviews)

Beach description

Skotini, a stunning beach, is nestled between Ravdoucha and Agios Vasilios at Cape Sideris, near Panagia Myrtidiotissa at Choni. It is found at the end of a narrow, steep gorge. The beach is reachable via a striking trail that begins at Saint Marina (Agia Marina) in Ravdoucha and extends to Nopigia. Approximately 20-25 minutes into the hike, after passing the rock above Ravdoucha beach, you divert from the path and descend towards the dilapidated iron ore transhipment facilities that were operational in the early 20th century. Historically, there existed a small settlement, Skotini, inhabited by mining workers.

Before arriving at the rugged coastline, you’ll discover a sizable cave that provides refuge for the local goats. After cautiously navigating through the mine and natural saltpans, you will reach Skotini beach, noted for its rocks and cavities, and also referred to as Metalio (mine). The beach features pebbles and crystal blue waters. However, it is significantly impacted by the west winds that carry litter across the Kissamos bay. The beach provides an idyllic relaxation spot during the south winds, when the waters are clear.
