Trafoulas beach and gorge

Trafoulas Gorge: A Geological Masterpiece in the Asterousia Mountains

Trafoulas Gorge is a breathtaking geological formation located southeast of the village of Krotos in the Asterousia Mountains. Hidden from the view of most, the gorge starts from a higher point and ends at the secluded beach.

While the route from the car parking area to the beach is popular, the true grandeur of the gorge is revealed to those who choose to explore its upper part. It is a narrow, imposing passage through granite formations that will take your breath away.

Accessing the upper part requires caution, especially during periods with water, but no special equipment is required. Exploration rewards visitors with a unique spectacle of geological formations and meanders.

Local tradition says that the narrowest part of the gorge is called “Pidematos Gorge” because it is said that an animal could jump from one side to the other.
