Hike @ Cap Maleas

A hike took us close to Cap Maleas in the southeast of the Peloponnese with great views along the coast. 

Parking for the night

Sunrise …

We had spent the night at the the Laconian Gulf near the island of Elafonisos directly at the sandy beach. The next morning we enjoyed a great sunrise and soon left for our hike, which started near the village of Profitis Ilias at the parking of a geopark next to a fossil forest (36.440970, 23.141110)
