Glifo beach

The third beach of Faros

It is the third beach of Faros and considered the most beautiful by many. A small paved path through the settlement leads to Glyfo. Faros overlooks the rock of Chrysopigi, just like from Fassolou, while on the right side you can see the loading facilities of the mines. On the right side of Glyfou beach, a short paved coastal path begins which leads to the beach of Apokofto and Chrysopigi.
