May be the best in Crete. A beautiful bay of about 200m between high rocks at the end of a gorge! The perfect setting. Really crystal clear water. Not at all touristic since you can either go by boat from Kaloi Limenes or by car...More

Nightmare to get here. Road is horrendous. Then it’s a thirty minute walk to the beach. The gorge is beautiful but it’s not worth the long drive. The beach was nothing special. Too many nudists who disrespected the grounds. There is a sign that states...More

Really nice walk to a pretty little deserted beach. Little church near the end. River valley but no water due to lack of rain. Road very rough track so we bottled out and left the car further away.

We went with 2 children (7 and 12 years) and we have enjoyed the walk to the beach a lot. Nice nature, goats and lots of butterflies. The beach is breathtaking!

First a short walk through a small ravine before arriving this hidden paradise. Chrystal clear water, great for relaxing, swimming and snorkeling. Fantastic experiences for the whole family.

I think I've found my favorite beach on the South Coast. It's far enough to keep the riff-raff away, it's spotless and there's a hike involved to get there. Please leave only footprints and nudists stay in your designated beaches - I'll be bringing my...More
