GIOLAView on map
Not far from Astris, you can find Giola. This is a natural seawater swimming pool, separated from the sea by a narrow rock bridge. The pool is refreshed by waves which keep it crystal clear. The daring can jump into the pool from a series of steps, up to about 10 meters high, or just relax on the flat rocks and enjoy an amazing vista. To get there you need to take a dirt road (sign-posted) and follow it to its end where you will find somewhere to park at the top of the hill. From here you will walk down a path until you find the hidden gem of Giola. The location will amaze you! Thimonia beach is also very close to Giola.
