The road south from Atsitsa deteriorates into a rutted track, nerve-wracking even for experienced motorbike riders. If you're feeling fit and the weather's good, however, consider the challenging 6 km (4-mile) trek around the headland to Ayios Fokas. There are three lovely white-pebbled beaches and a small taverna where Kyria Kali serves fresh fish caught that very same day by her fisherman husband; the fish is garnished with her own vegetables, homemade cheese, and bread.
She also rents out a couple of very basic rooms without electricity or plumbing. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best For: solitude; snorkeling; sunset; swimming; walking.
