Eastern Beach of Saint Nicholas

On either side of the little church of Saint Nicholas of Balo (or Palo) Bay at Akrotiri, we find two very beautiful secluded beaches with black volcanic sand. We reach the beaches and the church by descending from the main road to Akrotiri (covering a 110 meter altitude difference), starting where we see the second sign for Path 11 after the Avant Garde Hotel. The trail is steep and requires some caution (descent time 15 minutes). In the 19th century, this area was a port where the region's products were transported. We will see its damaged pier, as well as crumbling buildings and a cave on the small deserted beach west of the little church. Path 11 continues east of the beach, running along the coastline to the organized Apothikes Beach (time 20-25 minutes), and from there it ascends to the main road of Akrotiri.
