Beaches on the island of Crete

Grammeno beach in Gialos

Grammeno beach in Gialos

Grammeno (Γραμμένο) is a beach that can be counted among one of the best and most beautiful beaches in this part of Crete.

Diaskari Beach - Green Beach

Diaskari Beach - Green Beach

Diaskari Beach, also known as Green Beach, is less than 3 km from Makry Gialos. This quiet place with a small and simple tavern is a good way to spend a relaxing day away from more crowded places.

Beach in Krios

Beach in Krios

Krios beach is located about 9 km west of Paleochora and it is also the last beach on this section of the southern coast, accessible by road. For Crius, the asphalt road leaves the coast line and goes deep into the island, turning into a gutter.

Glyka Nera

Glyka Nera

Glyka Nera is one of the most spectacular beaches in Crete. Located at the foot of a majestic, steep hillside high for several hundred meters, it is one of the better places for peaceful rest. There are relatively few people here who get to this beach by boat or on their own feet. It is worth knowing that the popular London Times in 2003 recognized this beach as one of the 20 most interesting in Europe.


Beach in Souda in the south of Crete

Beach in Souda in the south of Crete

Souda is at the end of the ravine, whose bottom is the Finikas River. This small stream fed by the mountain streams is full of water throughout the year. The good availability of water makes the valley green even at the peak of the holiday season. In several places along Finikas, you can see groves of the Cephonist palm Teofrast (Phoenix theophrastii), which you can know from places such as Vai and Preveli. Souda is one of the most important reserves, where this very rare species is found.

Triopetra - three rocks beach

Triopetra - three rocks beach

Triopetra is located at the foot of the Siderotas mountain about 52 km south of Rethymno. In the old days there was a settlement here, which was a cluster of a dozen or so small houses built mainly by the residents of the village of Akoumia, located about 13 km north of Triopetra. At that time, these buildings were inhabited only during the summer. Residents of the village of Akumia moved to them to be closer to their cultivated fields.

Beach in Damnoni

Beach in Damnoni

Damnoni boasts a wide beach located in a deeply embedded bay, the boundaries of which are marked by two peninsulas facing the sea. Along the shore of a small river that flows into the sea in the western part of the beach, there is a local road where you can leave your car. However, if you plan to come here weekend, you have to reckon with the fact that finding a free place to park the car can take a moment.


Palm beach of Vai

Palm beach of Vai

Vai grew loud when in the 1970s a commercial of coconut Bounty bars was filmed on the background of a palm grove, which probably most of you associate. Coconuts falling in advertising were fabricated because only date palms grow on Vai. Nevertheless, paradise on earth was discovered. The hippies first appeared here, looking for a new mecca, and Vai became a giant camping site surrounded by a mountain of garbage.

Palm beach in Preveli

Palm beach in Preveli

Due to the characteristic curve of the Megapotamos River, which flows into the Libyan Sea, Preveli is one of the most recognizable beaches in Crete. It is located at the end of a deep ravine, which starts below the buildings of the Piso Preveli monastery. The palm trees and amazing landscape attracts thousands of tourists every year.

Lagos Balos - the most beautiful beach of Crete

Lagos Balos - the most beautiful beach of Crete

Balos is one of Crete's flagship beaches if not all of Greece. We can assure you that the landscapes you see during your trip to Balos will remain with you for a very long time. It's worth seeing this place with your own eyes, because the pictures taken here have become a kind of icon illustrating the beauty of Greece.


Tripiti beach and gorge

Tripiti beach and gorge

Redirected from the site - Tripiti beach and gorge. Tripiti is a small beach covered with a mixture of gray sand, gravel and stones. Despite the fact that the beach is unorganized and has a semi-natural appearance, one small tavern works here. The vast majority of people relaxing in this place are the local Cretans. This is evidenced by the fact that the vast majority of parked cars are pickups and off-road vehicles. A great surprise is the view of many caravans, campers and tents, which are in the vicinity of tablets strongly prohibiting camping and parking ... caravans. On the hill in the north-eastern part of the beach (Kalokambos), you can see small Minoan ruins.

Beach at Skinaria

Beach at Skinaria

Redirected from the site - Shinaria. Skinaria is a small beach located along a small bay, whose outlet on both sides ends with a rocky coast. It is still a little-known place overlooked by mass tourism. Peace and quiet and an interesting bottom abounding in the marine flora and fauna are the biggest advantages of this beach. Under favorable conditions, crystal clear water allows visibility up to 40m deep into the sea. It should not be surprising that Skinaria is so eagerly visited by diving centers.

Redirected from the site - Elafonissi. Elafonissi is a small island located at the end of the south-western edge of Crete. A characteristic feature of Elafonisi is the shallow lagoon connecting it with Crete. Warm and crystal clear water with a color changing from green to deep blue, is adjacent to beautiful wide beaches, whose white sand is in some places mixed with broken shells creating picturesque pink stripes. This amazing blend of colors makes Elafonissi easily claim to be called an exotic paradise.

Falasarna - beach with TOP 10

Falasarna - beach with TOP 10

In 2002, Falasarna won the title of the best beach in Greece. This distinction is by no means accidental, because this place is truly unique by Crete standards. The long and, above all, wide beach called Pachia Amos is completely different from the majority

Jarek Koziolek: Polecam stronę KEEP TALKING GREECE
Aska Mazur: Super
Marzena Zalinska: Ach ta Kreta kochana! Pozdrów Kretę ode mnie i tatku. Mam nadzieję że nie odwołają lotu.
Kama Pawlicka: Ja myślę o Grecji od 31 lipca. Ale się waham.
Karolina Krawczyńska: Jaka jest obecnie sytuacja na Krecie - czy istnieje obowiązek noszenia maseczek/ trzeba wykonać przed przyjazdem/po przyjeździe test czy tylko wypełnić formularz?
Artur Gulak: A jak Grecy podchodzą do lotów z lotniska w Katowicach? Dalej obowiązkowa kwarantanna ? Ktoś coś wie?
Jarek Koziolek: Polecam stronę keepttalkinggreece.com
Agnieszka Langner: Mój kolejny cel
Monika Zofia Koprowska-Ludwig: My jesteśmy w tej chwili w Ajos Nicolaos. Jest cudownie! Wszędzie pusto, ludzie przesympatyczni. W samolocie leciało 40 osób:) miałam 1 więc byłam przygotowana na test. No i jak przewidywałam jestem zdrowa i całe miasto dla nas:) ceny bardzo atrakcyjne, pogoda wyśmienita. Nigdy już tak nie będzie jak teraz:)
Brygida Radkowska: Tęsknię
Anna Zabłocka: My rozwazalismy lot na Krete, tydzien urlopu. Zniechecila nas opcja losowej lapanki na test covid po przylocie. Nie chcielismy sie mimo wszystko tym stresowac. I dlatego jestesmy w Hiszpanii. Ale Krete kocham i jestem z nia calym swoim sercem
Bohdan Anetta Dorsz: Wszystko się zgadza smutno wszędzie
Monika Maja Mandrak-Górz: My jesteśmy teraz na Rodos. Bardzo mało turystów, dużo zamkniętych knajpek, sklepów. Napewno bardzo trudny czas dla Greków. Lecieliśmy Lotem z Warszawy, na pokładzie było może ok 40 osób.
gość dodekanezowiec: A co, Giannoulis się nie otworzył jeszcze? No właśnie, 200 pokoi, co będzie jak 1 osoba w hotelu zachoruje? Tez może zmieniac na małe hotele... Ale w małych nic dla dzieci nie ma. 
gość dodekanezowiec: - patrzysz tylko na TUI i grubo przesadzasz. Itaka daje wybór ceny z dnia rezerwacji ale ja TUI zazdroszczę zostawienia samolotów z lotnisk lokalnych czy zaliczki 5%. A ze lipiec droższy od maja to zawsze tak było. A parę lastów na krzyz teraz już sie kończy Wszedzie dobrze gdzie nas nie ma :)
Agnieszka Jankowska: Czy ten hotel się otwiera -Giannoulis Santa Marina Beach Resort?
Łukasz Korpalski: nie mogę się doczekać :)
Gosia | crete.pl : Ale oficjalnie mają zakaz. Aby nie spotkał ich ten sam los co ostatnio obywateli Ukrainy....
Robert Molęcki: Myślę, że w przypadku wycieczek z Polski biura podróży dały plamę, sami musieliśmy zrezygnować z wycieczki w maju.. Chcieliśmy przenieść na lipiec to ceny 100% do góry.. Teraz gdy urlop już zaplanowany w Polsce to Oferty tańsze jak w maju...
Karina Jachimowicz: Wprowadźcie więcej obostrzeń, testy, w hotelowych restauracjach jest jak w szpitalu, w recepcji jak na izbie przyjęć. Te wszystkie maseczki, pomiary temperatury i "skakanie na jednej nóżce" są cyrkiem. To jest pierwszy rok od wielu, wielu lat, gdzie odpuszczam urlop bo nie widzę w tym ŻADNEGO sensu. Cyrk, ale beze mnie.
gość dodekanezowiec: Szwedzi se przez Danię latają. 
Michał Michał: Ja lece 22.07 z LOT em na 9 dni.oby sie udalo..
Katarzyna Woś: My też mamy 22 lipca, mieliśmy lecieć 3, 6, 13 lipca i cały czas nam odwołują loty. Zobaczymy,czy tym razem się uda.
Beata Żurek: My lecimy z rodzinką 22 lipca
Małgorzata Gębska: Jestem teraz na Krecie. Jest mega mało ludzi może 1/4 tego co normalnie. Obecnie znajduje się na Gavdos więc tutaj mam wrażenie jakbym była tylko ja i kilka osób ;) dla mnie super dla kretenczykow tragedia.
