Don't quite know what I was expecting but this definitely wasn't it. Absolutely magical as there were very few other people there when we went and thete is a vast area to cover.

Yes, it is closed. After reading the last review, I assumed they were just unlucky and must have visited on a bank holiday or something. I checked the website before setting off from Anaxos and it said it was open. A sign at the 5 kilometre approach road would have been nice. We drove all the way there to find... 更多
