Agriomantra: Α secluded and pebbly beach in Kavousi

 Agriomantra is a secluded beach, located 3,5 km away from Kavousi, in Ierapetra. 

With a beautiful rocky backdrop and a wonderful view of the sea, this tiny beach promises an unforgettable excursion for swimming or fishing.

Agriomantra can be reached through the sea, by boat, or by a 10-15 minutes hiking, via the nearby gorge.

The pebble beach is not organized at all but you can find there a tamarisk which can offer you its shade.

In the past the bay was used, by the local people, as a small port to export their products, such as olive oil, wine, carobs etc.

 A few meters away, on the left side of the beach, you can see the cavernous church of Saint John the Forerunner.

 The beach is known for its natural environment and it is the ideal place for total privacy.

From the port of Tholos there is a boat, which organizes daily excursions to the islet of Pseira that passes from Agriomantra, allowing its passengers to swim there or to have a barbecue
