A beautiful setting (north-ish facing, next to the sea) and an area that gets very little traffic. Unfortunately, the routes here are, to put it nicely, less than desirable. If your plan to climb in Sikati Cave was changed by the sight of 15 scooters and two cars at the parking pull-out, The Beach should definitely not be Plan B. In my honest opinion, this place is not worth a visit. Routes are overgrown, the rock is razor sharp, and the climbs are simply not enjoyable. None of the routes we did deserve any stars (the book gives every climb at least 2 stars). The view is, however, beautiful. The take-home message?: go here to swim and relax (but watch out for see urchins!), not to climb.
See the 2010 version of the Kalymnos Rock Climbing Guidebook (The Beach is sector 6).
