the underwater active volcano

You are here:


This beach has small black and red pebbles. Also, a huge, impressive rock offering its shadow during the hottest hours of the day. It was -and still is- popular with nudists. It is usually fairly quiet and there are no sun beds or umbrellas. Therefore, you should bring with you any supplies you might need. At a short distance east there is the underwater crater of Columbo which last erupted in 1650. Those who dare, may go for an exploration of the deep: the crater is 500 meters from the surface, but its SW end is just 10 meters down.
