  • It is useless to write so much ... it is a wonderful place as well as the whole Greece! and we hope that many will continue undeterred to ride a Salento or Sardinia ... so-called leave camp ...

  • From Elophonissi the trail E4 in the direction of Paleochora leads to this beach. Before you get there you cross a protected area with its impressive wind-twisted junipers. Kipling was right!!! remember water and food because on the beach there is nothing

  • After 4 years of clay discovered this paradise, on the advice of friends who live in Kissamos. The first attempt went bad in the sense that, not knowing exactly which side look for the beach, I turned the whole area into far and wide but, not wanting to damage the car I finally gave up. The next day I planned everything, on the map of the phone and it was pretty easy to get there, of course I like from my usually not happened in the parking lot that all describe but far ahead, where according to the Navigator, I perched for a road impassable not recommended for the faint of heart, which leads to the Repeater above the area from where I took some beautiful photos of course I also understand that this was not the right way ... Cursed be the Navigator "went back in search of the right way, I came to a clearing that declines impervious to sea and that leads to another piece of flat land with at its heart a nice olive branch, where I parked our car under its refreshing shade, from here we descend a path for anything challenging (done with flip flops and leading me around the cooler , backpack and other necessary equipment to increase the comfort while staying) but my family and we are now accustomed to treks in flip flops. From here you can reach before a small Bay just "paradise" with a small pink and white beach, proseguendo arrive at the largest Beach and even a little more crowded, if crowded can be defined (but I did it my way and if I start to have around more than a dozen people, for me it's already crowded) the place is frequented by few tourists who enjoy being naked but also by students and young people of the island, which Luckily for them still manage to find a quiet place to relax. They say the sea is gorgeous as Elafonissi, for my taste even better. The presence of pseudo Cedars gives you a bit of shade, that certainly doesn't hurt. I was just happy to find another gem that gave me beautiful and unforgettable moments. Hopefully you're still so, and although it is not really my style of life, made me want to return one day, to fit with the tent and spend the night, to enjoy the unique and magical atmosphere which certainly pervades this place at night, who knows maybe one day ... I hope it remains always and only in this way, it is; hard to get to, popular student and residents of the island, nudist, not suitable for everyone and especially to families, without some, otherwise it will be like all the other beautiful beaches in Crete, where there is often a scene of rudeness, incivility and ignorance of all free. While living mainly on tourism, the Cretans are entitled to have areas which in a certain sense belong only to them or at least where us tourists we account for just being lucky users of something that we can only and happily enjoy them momentarily, but with the duty to respect their exquisite beauty and with knowledge of just being lucky "intruders" in a paradise that we are kindly to live.

  • At this beach you will feel like in a paradise. It's totally wild, so there's nothing but a mature around. That's the reason why most tourists here are nudists. But no worry, it's pretty difficult to get here, so there's no crowd of tourists. On the whole beach there were many 20 people. I would definitely recommend this beach for those people who like being close to nature.
  • One of the best places in Greece. You can go there by foot from Elafonisi (I recommend it) and it's a beautiful place for a swim.
  • Fantastic beach, so much nicer than busy Elafonisi. Some people camp out here with small tents under trees, which gives it a very relaxed atmosphere. There is shade on the beach, the scenery is great and it has white sand. Wonderfull.
  • One of the best beaches I've ever been too. Great quiet alternative to elafonissi. Just the road to the beach is quite rough.
  • One of the best beaches in the island. It's hidden from most of the tourists which are coming to Elafonisi. The color of the water and pine trees on the beach makes this place unique. This place is mainly occupied by naturalists who are enjoying the sun without the swimming suits.
