Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα) is the fourth largest city of Crete and also the largest town located in the Lassithi prefecture. It is located on the south-eastern coast of the island, in the place of its characteristic narrowing. The name of the largest city in this part of Crete is by no means synonymous with some astronomical number of people living permanently in Ierapetra . In 2011, it was only about 16 thousand inhabitants. Low buildings, however, cause that the city is quite extensive and occupies a relatively large coastal area.
The film was made during the cruise between Chora Sfakion and Agia Roumeli. Along the way from the ferry, you can admire many interesting places located on the south coast of Crete such as the road to Anopoli, charming Loutro, beaches in Phoenix, the outlet of the Aradena gorge, Marmara beach and the green hills of Agia Roumeli.
Korakas is a little known beach located in the mountain town of Rodakino in the south of Crete. Despite the fact that it is 400 m long and is quite wide, it does not attract too many tourists. Along the charming bay there are several taverns and guest houses.
Of course, you can get to Loutro by ferry from Chora Sfakion, but we again set a slightly more ambitious plan and we passed a part of the E4 route between these towns. An additional advantage of this solution is the opportunity to see the amazing Glyka Nera beach, ie Słodka Woda.
