Tour description

A breathtaking journey through picturesque nature reserves, mountains, gorges and traditional villages will lead you to unique beaches with pink sand! You will reach a church by the ''golden steps'' to see the millennial icon of the Assumption of Virgin. Exotic beach with white sand and turquoise water, reminding of the Caribbean, are formed on either side of the peninsula. The sand is pinkish in many places, taking its colour from millions of crushed shells.
