Stunning, that’s the best word to describe Gerolimenas. Well not the town as such, which is pretty, but its setting at the end of a bay which is dominated on one side by a huge cliff which is called Cavo Grosso. There is not much to do in the town itself but it’s a pleasant mooch and it’s worth taking a quick look at the posh Hotel Kyrimai which is, well, very posh and has a pool.
Once in Gerolimenas you may consider staying the night. Hotel Akrogiali on the waterfront looks ideal [maybe next time for us].

The drive to Gerolimenas is pretty wonderful too, past deserted coves, tower houses, sleepy villages and ‘The Frying Pan’ and the roads are empty, just the occasional car. It’s a long drive to get there from Stoupa and after Areopoli I don’t think there are any supermarkets so make sure that you have all the essentials with you [plenty of water and snacks].

The Frying Pan.
