more adventures out on our 125 today . decided to do the south eastern peninsula today and visit a few places . boy was the whole place rammed down there , first week of august it was crazy busy ! firstly porto zorro , parked up , saw the beach and got off ! too much , it was heaving ! looked nice tho …

so decided on elsewhere when we stumbled on a nice looking bakery called TRANAKAS . got a ham and cheese pie [lol] , tasty ! 2 euro i think it was . everything was so fresh from there

we then made our way down to banana beach … again , rammed … so we left !

so we went to gerakas beach , thought it would be quiet being a turtle beach … wrong ! we pulled up and two huge car parks had hundreds of cars in and at breaking point , so we simply did a u-turn and left without stopping ! i had an idea of a junction i had spotted at a x-roads earlier might lead us somewhere a bit more off the radar . so we ended up following the road to PORTO ROMA . we ended up here for a few hours in a skinny strip of sand and very few people . a lovely peaceful afternoon in the end . shoreline had a lot of old washed up seaweed at one end , but it was clean and natural . quite a few boulders in the sea too around the shoreline , but rather that than sitting on top of other people πŸ˜‰

after here we needed some food so ended up in an unknown named restaurant where stuffed vine leaves where the highlight . lovely landscaped restaurant not near anywhere , but i guess the nearest places would be the bakery i mentioned earlier and the banana beach turnoff , right on a sharp bend .
