Tis Grias To Pidima Beach


A vibrant and famous spot for all ages!
Grias to Pidima beach, meaning the place where the old lady jumped in Greek, is located on the southeast coast of Andros, north from Ormos Kotrhiou, after the port of Vitzi. There is a path leading to this beautiful sandy beach with the characteristic rock which gave the name to the spot. It is believed that during Turk domination the Castle of Kohilos was given to the enemy by an old lady that asked shelter from its inhabitants but when she entered the castle, she opened the doors deliberately and the Turks dominated it. The old lady was so shameful that she jumped from the cliff and it is believed that she has been petrified ever since. Despite this "unpleasant" legend, the beach is a very beautiful cove and pretty popular among visitors and locals.
