Follow directions to Kardamena (about 30mins drive across to the South coast of the island from Mastihari) and then to the go kart track, about 7kms out Eastwards from the town centre: (see http://gokart-kardamena.gr/). From the go-kart track, the boulders are obvious on the hillside above, and are best approached by continuing a few hundred metres further East, before taking a rough 4x4 track uphill and parking by a cluster of derelict and restored cottages. The boulders extend Westwards from here. Take care to leave livestock fences and gates as you find them.
