One of the best beaches in Chania prefecture, quite untouched and unexplored. Many travelers use the area around the beach as a free camping spot. It is actually a cedar forest next to the beach. It is also a favorite beach for naturists. The road up to Elafonisi is quite good and then you need to take a non asphalt road for about 10 minutes. Then you also need to take a walk path for another 15-20 minutes. No matter the time you will need to go there, it's sure that you will enjoy that unique beach.

I’ve been in Kedrodasos Beach (Lafonisi for locals) during the 80s. Since then it chance a lot for better and for worst. The good news is that a road has been constructed and it must more easiest to visit it. The bad news is that it became too much touristic. In any case the beach remains beautiful. Try to visit...

About 4km drive from busy Elafonisos beach through the tomato houses, find Kedrodasos Beach could be an adventure though my TomTom pinpointed it. After parking it's a ten minute walk down to the start of the beach. The far left hand end, looking out to sea, is mostly naturist but the whole beach appears clothing optional. The beach is backed... More

This was my first experience at a clothing optional beach and it was a good one. The beach sand/water are beautiful and if you want to take your clothes off and tan or swim naked you are free. Not very crowded and worth going to when you get tired of Elafonissos beach.

The beach is situated 1 km before the most famous Elafonisi. It is quite easy to reach with gps. On the way to Elafonisi, turn on your left following the indication for "Sklavopoula". From this point, a fire road will take you to the beach. You have to park on the top and then go down by walking, for 10... More

Best isolated beach in Crete. No services at all. Not signed in any way so use WAZE GPS from the app store to get there or ask the locals.

Amazing location, worth the rough road to get there. Be prepared wih water and any snack you might need as there is nothing there. Probably the best untouched beach in Chania

Bad road, too far away, no facilities. Not as nice as Eleffonisi beach where there are better services.

A 30 min walk from Elafonisi beach to a non crowded sandy beach with shady trees and lots of space. Good mixture of nude and clothing optional bathing. When the boat back to Paleochora leaves from Elafonisi it´s getting very private and quiet. Masses prefer Elafonisi and should go there, individuals will like this one.
