Location: At the end of the Vassilikos Peninsular
Getting There: Follow the main road from Argassi. Go through the town of Vassilikos and continue until you come across what looks like a crossroads. Straight on takes you to Gerakas
Access: Much easier since they built a wooden ramp in 2008. You could get a wheelchair down now, but you would have to be strong to get it back up!
Sunbeds: Yes, but strictly controlled by the Marine Park and the majority of the beach is free from sunbeds
Toilets: Yes, a portaloo is provided by the Marine Park
Safe for Kids: Yes, the bay is usually well sheltered by the surrounding cliffs
Food & Drinks: No, you have to leave the beach and walk back along the road a short distance
Turtles: Yes, you will certainly see evidence of Loggerhead Sea Turtles nesting on the beach and there is an information centre on the main road just before you reach the beach
Seaweed: Not usually
Sand or Pebbles: Fine sand
Car Parking: Car parking is available along the road, but not by the beach itself so you will have to walk a short way. It can get very busy in peak season so try to avoid weekends and bank holidays
