A fine and extremely accessible crag with 45 routes up to 35m in length and covering the grade spectrum with the exception of the very easiest stuff. The climbing tends to be steep and the holds are not always 'helpful' - a good place for a work-out.
Approach - Drive into Perissa on the south-east coast of the island and keep heading towards the cliff-face at the end of the beach. It is possible to park under the first few routes.
