Welcome to Rodopou Peninsula
The barren, rocky Rodopou Peninsula has a few small villages clustered at its base but the rest is uninhabited. A paved road goes as far as Afrata, which has a couple of great tavernas like Tis Litsas Ta Kamomata, but then becomes a dirt track that meanders through the peninsula. If you are travelling by foot, 4WD, motorcycle or boat you can reach the Diktynna sanctuary at the end of the peninsula, but make sure you have planned your journey and are well supplied; there is not a drop of petrol or water, nor a morsel of food, beyond Afrata. From Afrata a road winds down to the small, gravelly pebbly Afrata Beach, with a small summer-only snack bar.
