This was the most amazing journey!! The (washed out in places) road clung to the cliffs with sheer drops on unguarded edges down to the sea, very nerve-racking. We really thought we had taken a wrong turn but realised the bus had come past us. Finally the road surface returned but the approach to Kiparissi was very steep and narrow.
It is a very picturesque place when you finally reach it. A couple of kafeneons (closed ) and tavernas and supposedly some accommodation which we didn't find. There is a nice looking beach to the north above which are a few buildings.
It is one of the stopping off places for the hydrofoils. What a life-line it must be in this out-of-the-way place.

2007 UPDATE: THE FLYING DOLPHIN SERVICE NO LONGER OPERATES IN THESE WATERS, LEAVING THESE SMALL EAST COAST PORTS VERY ISOLATED.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
