This short, fairly flat trail leads to a rough and rocky beach with views of the coastline and Pola Island. Due to unfriendly dogs, please drive past the last house at the end of the paved road in Vatia Village. This rough section of road will lead you to three exhibits and the trailhead.

Short walk to the water’s edge where waves crash hard against the shoreline. No problems with dogs on the way in and a few barked as we left. Just stay off their property and motion like you are picking up a rock to throw at them and they will keep their distance.
