Ano Meria-Agios Georgios road

The scary unpaved road to Agios Georgios beach

Ano Meria-Agios Georgios road is a short extreme road located in the island of Folegandros, in the Aegean Sea, part of the Cyclades, in Greece. It's one of the scariest roads of the country. One mistake and it's a free fall to your death.

Located at the very northern end of the island of Folegandros, this extreme road is 5.3km long. It links the town of Ano Meria and the beach of Agios Georgios. The area around is not inhabited and the beach is rather secluded. In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. Drive with care as this is a road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. You might want to take this into consideration if you have passengers that don't like heights. Be prepared, this road is not for the faint of heart or ill prepared. One mistake can have serious consequences. It’s one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world.

The road is mostly gravel and very narrow, impassable for 2 cars at the same time. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo. Do not travel this road in severe weather conditions. This beach is subject to strong winds and it is always wise to first check the weather report of the day prior to visiting the beach. The road is unsuitable for private conventional car or taxis. Only bikes and 4WD cars.
