"Camping on the beach" Hidden Beaches Tip by kat-m
Hidden Beaches, Crete Island: 20 reviews and 57 photos
From Matala to Kali Limenas it is a good hours drive. Up over the mountains with fantastic views over the masara plain and once you are up and over you then have the sea views. Kali Limenas is a tiny village with a couple of Tavernas and not much else. The beach and the water are spectacular, the sea being completely transparent. All along the beach are caravans, tents, cardboard (yes) makeshift shelters. These are mainly Greeks who invade the beach at weekends and holidays, they go for the weekend and can leave thier belongings until the next visit , safe in the knowledge that nothing will be tampered with. A Greek millionaire seemingly owns a lot of the surrounding land and on an island out in the bay has built an oil terminal this is the only blot on the horizon but we found it easy to ignore. A thoroughly reccomended trip.
