A little corner of paradise

What makes Gulpiyuri beach so special is its stunning location. Unlike traditional beaches that stretch along the coast, Gulpiyuri lies just a few dozen metres inland, surrounded by lush green meadows and limestone cliffs. This little wonder is actually a cove carved into the limestone rock, with a stretch of salt water fed by the tides of the Atlantic Ocean.
