Hi, we are returning to San Stef in July after 5 years. Will we see many changes?
 
We never got round to going to Arillas last time - How long does it take to walk there and could we walk back in the dark?
 
thanks

After 5 years, yes, there will some changes but the feel of the place is still the same!
 
It takes under 30 minutes to walk to Arilas but if you are returning at night, I would bring a torch!

As HotSun says you will need a torch for the dark, the path is a bit iffy in places. You will also find two nice bars on top of the hill to ease the walk, one is called the Akrotiri lounge bar can`t remember the  name of the other one, but both worth a visit.
As of last year most of the changes are people moving to different premises, but San Stef as always does not disapoint. Hope you enjoy your holidayThumbs Up

I think you may find it impossible to walk to Arillas via the cliff path. I certainly would't attempt it at night.  A lot of it has fallen away this winter.

I agree with you Maggymae - I usually walk over to Arillas (and sometimes Afionas)  most mornings using the cliff path and look forward to going again in May and June but via road or cliff I wouldn't find any joy trying to do it in the dark. I say go in the day and enjoy the fabulous views of both bays. Hope you have a great time back in San Stef.

The other bar is the Gravia snack bar which is just at the junction where the path winds down to Arrilas. The bar is owned by Costas who used to work at the Nafsika. The bar has cracking views over to Gravia Island.

Oh I didn't realise there was a cliff path, I thought they were just joined by road. So are the bars mentioned above on the road?
Is Bar 38 still going? Has it closed or just moved?

Hi Nickos
Bar 38 has just moved over the road, it is a bit more modern in design, but still worth a visit.
There are a few paths to go over the top to Arrilis. We use the one on the bend where the path to the beach is, near the juice bar. It is a steep path up but worth it for the view, when you get to the top the bars are to the left and right. You will see the path down to Arrilis from there. If anyone knows could you explain about the other paths if they are easier to use or not.Thumbs Up

Worth walking to the top even if you don' t get to Arilas that way. The views are amazing.

I discovered another way to get to Arillas last year, when you get to the Gravia bar on the top instead of walking down the cliff path, take the left turn road and you go through a little farming community with lots of animals and lovely gardens.
The good thing is it seems fairly flat when walking but you are going downhill to the back of Arillas, near the petrol station and Christos Apartments. There is a shop at this turning to get supplies.
Follow the road down and you will end up at the beach, then you could walk back up the cliff path, a nice round route.
I'm back in August (going to Nissaki in June though, hope to find some nice walks there)
