We can vouch for what the mini-guide on climbing in Vlychada (link here) claims: “Vlychada is unbelievable – it is most people’s dream crag”. This is no overstatement. Set on a beach with emerald waters is a crag that’s just hit the climbing scene and is bound to create some noise. Bolted in September 2016, this crag offers stunning lines on clean, multi-coloured, bulletproof limestone in a breathtakingly remote, wild yet accessible little cove on the south east coast of the Peloponnese. Park on the beach, wake up to the sun rising above the ocean, potter 20 metres to the crag to climb top quality rock all day (pitches up to 40 metres), then 20 metres towards the aquamarine waters to freshen up afterwards. Going in low-season increase your chances of having the beach and crag to yourself. Do not miss it.
NB: the advantage of going in high-season is that there are loos, showers, bins and running water available. None of these function in low season so make sure you’ve enough water.
