Achla Beach

International > Europe > Greece > Andros


Once there a few fun options exist. Looking out to the sea you can go around to the left and find some routes where the water isn't very deep but the rock is the most amazing I have found on the island. I believe it is water sculpted marble. There is also a section of rock that is 300m swim out from the beach where the water is deep enough to jump and the rock is steep enough to climb. This rock is the same poor schist with quartz. The quartz sticks out so far it makes me think of climbing out of a giant shark's mouth.

Getting There

4x4 (30 min - 1 hour) or boat (15 euro from Chora) can get you to the beach.
