This cove seemed to be the one directly below the houses #29 & #30, and was not really a place for the tourists  due to the dangerous access, even though it had the most spectacular view of the sea.

Today there maybe better trails for tourists, but always get enough info ahead of any expeditions. The overgrowns may harbours unfriendly widlifes in your ways.

Always go as a group including some locals.
