A hairy unpaved road to Agios Georgios beach

Agios Georgios is a quiet sandy beach with crystalline blue waters, located in the northwestern edge of the island of Folegandros, in the Aegean Sea, part of the Cyclades, in Greece. It’s not recommended to visit the beach when it is windy.

The rough dirt road to the beach is challenging. It’s unpaved and winds down towards the sea, with a few dangerous drop offs (you might want to take this into consideration if you have passengers that don't like heights). The road is 5.3km (3.29 miles) long, starting from the lovely village of Ano Meria, the second largest settlement in Folegandros. There is a section near its ends that is especially uneven and drops by about 20%. It’s one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world.

The beach is very windy. It is always wise to first check the weather report of the day prior to visiting the beach. The road is pretty narrow and not for the faint of heart. The area around is not inhabited and the beach is rather secluded.
