A wild gravel road to Lagada Beach in Greece
Kakia Lagada is a secluded beach with pristine sand, clear water and terrific views located on the eastern side of Kythera, a Greek island, once part of the Ionian Islands, in Greece. If you are afraid of driving next to cliffs and narrow roads reconsider beforehand.
Located in the municipality of Kythira, the road to the beach is pretty challenging. It’s a rough unpaved road. The beach is located at the end of the Paleochora canyon. On the beach there is a well-equipped canteen, there are umbrellas and sun-beds and quite often there are volley-ball tournaments.
The road is a bit narrow. Starting from Ag. Pelagia, it’s 2.8 km long. At the entrance of the beach there is a car parking. During the winter months, a large lake is created just behind the beach by the water coming from the gorge.
