The word, Nepenthe, first appears in Homer’s Odyssey, and figuratively means that which chases away sorrow, grief, or mourning. It was said to be a magical potion given to quell all sorrow with forgetfulness.
The first level is a small parking lot surrounded by trees. The second level, up a flight of stairs, around lush vegetation and trees, leads to the gift shop and a terraced Cafe Kevah where lunch is served.
Continuing up another flight of stairs is the main large terrace with outdoor tables and a small indoor seating area and bar. The outer rim of the terrace is lined by a plank type table that extends around the ocean side allowing for an incredible view as you sip a cocktail or eat.
Words do not describe the beauty, and I will move on to additional photos I took while there this last weekend.
