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.

This is a beautiful wild and unspoiled beach, that is not so popular thanks to the nearby Elafonisi which takes most of the turist crowds. It has fine sand and natural shade from juniper trees.

Walked to this lovely beach from overcrowded Elafonnisi beach. I am 77 and it took 40 minutes from Elafonnisi parking (east end). You need good shoes to follow the path eastwards, it is a walking route marked with yellow markers and piles of stones (...More

It is hidden away and it took us a while to find it but it is probably the best beach I've ever been to. Clean and quiet, a Cretan welcomed me to "heaven" on our way down.

You need a car. And one with a good ground clearence if you can eftort it. It is a bit secluded, which is why it is so unspoiled. Get your hands on a good roadmap and stick to the southern coastline from Elafonissi.
