Tihida beach

0 (0 Reviews)

Beach description

If you journey eastward from Vlyhada beach at Livari near Goudouras for about an hour, you’ll eventually stumble upon the two abandoned beaches of Tihida. The surrounding region is riddled with caves and features wall-like rock formations, hence the name Tihida (Greek for ‘wall’). These formations provide much-needed shade during the hot summer months. Further east of the smaller beach, you’ll encounter the expansive Tihida beach, which sits at the mouth of the Tihida Gorge and is somewhat challenging to access. Proceeding further eastward, you’ll discover the majestic, elongated Karavopetra rock emerging from the sea.
