Coastal Places, Crete Island: 13 reviews and 27 photos

Driving from Agia Galini to the West in Plakias direction, after Melamber turn left, pass through the Ano Sakturia and Kato Sakturia villages and follow Agios Pavlos direction.

The promontory
The promontory worth a visit itself, especially if you are interested in geology. there are some interesting rocky formation to see. It consist in many rocky layers of different color that come up from the ground and help to see how this land have been formed by the heart movement.

The beaches
There are two beaches. The main one on the left of the promontory have a few beach facilities, the sea is calm and there are some flat stone to enter in the sea. Good for snorkeling.
In the right side od the promontory there are a big, wild beach, You have to walk down a high dark sand dune to reach it. Be very careful and wear closed shoes to walk the dune. The sand is hot and your feet would be burned. This beach is occasionally clothing optional.
Starting from this beach you can walk on the sand until you reach Triopetra beach.
