Horgota is a small rocky beach which is set in the most tranquil and picturesque setting. The beach lies beneath the traditional village of Komitata. You have to negotiate mountain roads to reach this beach. The track to the beach may only be suitable for a jeep or similar 4 wheel drive car. It is very rough and uneven. This location is usually reached via motor boat, which can be hired from most places.
Situated just across the water from the island of Ithaca, the views from Horgota are fabulous. The beach is fringed with olive trees and greenery can be seen all around. This beach was used in the Captain Corelli film. It was referred to as Mandra,s beach. The jetty from the film is still in place, however film buffs have removed planks as souvenirs
