I am a great fan of this beach ever since I first visited at the age of 6 years old with my parents and some family friends.

Since then I visited Egremni every year and had the privilege to swim in those magic blue and turquoise waters.

It has a real charm this place, it is wild, remote with thick vegetation on the footpath, bright white cliffs and also different shades of blue waters that will blow so many colors to your eyes.

In the video below, you can see how this looks like today. The video is taken on the 26th of June 2019.
