Mylopotamos Beach in Pelion, The Divided One.

Mylopotamos Beach, Pelion, Greece

Have you ever seen a beach so beautifully blessed and incredibly perfect that it feels like mother nature took a longer time to build it? Mylopotamos beach in Pelion definitely looks like the pièce de résistance of Pelion’s beach line up. Reaching the beach means you’ll have to tread a small cobblestone path carefully until the first sight of it comes into full view and takes your breathe away. After marveling at this beautiful prelude, you’ll soon find out that there’s a hole naturally carved out of the rock mountain which acts like a gateway to another beautiful cove. I don’t know about you but I’ve never seen anything like it before!

After having our breakfast in Agios Ioannis, we drove towards Mylopotamos beach without knowing what to expect. All I know is that it’s the second most popular beach in Pelion and by that description alone I was convinced to see it. There was ample parking space in the area and as soon as we’ve parked our car, we started our descent towards the beach using the cobblestone path which was quite scary and slippery to tread. (I’m a scaredy cat so don’t listen to me, it’s not that scary for normal people.)

It is a bit dangerous though specially for someone like me whose love for the beach is inexplicable. On the way there, you see a glimpse of how beautiful this beach is going to be which gets you more excited. The sound of the sea and the chatter of the people below you increases that excitement a notch more. I felt like a toddler hearing the sounds of an ice cream truck.

Ooooohhhhh la la were the first words (or sound) I was able to utter as soon as I saw Mylopotamos beach in its entirety. It’s gorgeous! The turquoise and clear water, the pebbles which I prefer than sand, the rock mountain which serves as a stunning backdrop of the beach and the lone rock in the middle of the sea to add up to the atmosphere of this already amazing scenery.

I was busy taking photos of the beach itself when I noticed something on my left. “Is that a hole carved out of the mountain?” I asked The Greek Mister. He didn’t say anything but started walking towards it. As we neared it, I realized that it is in fact a hole carved out of the mountain and it leads to another beach. I squealed and went crazy snapping as many photos as I can.

Mylopotamos beach is divided into two – the main one where we first went is the organized one complete with sunbeds, shower and a restaurant/cafe. The one on the other side of the rock is the unorganized one but it has some sort of a cave which you can seek shelter in if it gets too hot.

We’re not very organized beachgoers in fact, we didn’t even have beach towels with us so it wasn’t a hard decision to make which side of Mylopotamos beach to base ourselves on. We went back to the organized side of it and stayed there for only God knows how long.

In between reading a book, drinking beer and taking a dip in the cold refreshing waters of the beach I also dozed off for a bit. It was only when I felt my stomach rumble which is its cry that it needs to be refueled did we got up from our sunbeds and went on our way back to the car to search for food.

    These are so gorgeous – love the way you can pick your style – loungers or a bit less organised too. And that hole in the rock is so fun. #MondayEscapes

      Haha! Yes, this beach caters for both the organized and the not-so ones like us. We didn’t even have beach towels with us. We air-dried ourselves after swimming. Lol.

    Wow! That is a stunningly beautiful beach – the only beaches I’ve found like that (there was one in Ibiza) involved a huge long trek to it and then down to and we didn’t want to leave it to late before we headed back, so not really relaxing but definitely beautiful ! Sounds like you’ve found the perfect beach right there! 🙂 #mondayescapes

      Most of the beaches in Greece are like that, hard to reach but it’s always very beautiful so I’d walk, climb and trek for it really. BEach bums we are. :p

      Yes! The hole made a difference, I think it made it really unique compared to the other beaches that I’ve been in. 🙂
