Beaches in the area of Sougia & A. Roumeli

These regions lie on the south shores of the Chania Prefecture, between Chora Sphakion and Palaiochora. The beaches hereabouts, with the exception of Sougia, are not accessible by road. The only way to visit them is by boat, or on foot.

Beginning the tour, and proceeding west to east, the first beach one finds is that of Lissos.

This lovely spot is that of the old city of Lissos, in its lushly green valley setting. The beach is secluded, with sand, pebbles, rocks and deep waters; it is open to the strong south winds.

This lies at the mouth of the impressive gorge of Aghia Irini: an old city (once termed Syia, or the Place of Hogs), it too acted as a harbour-town for Elyros.

In the neighbourhood called Charei is the beach of Aghios Antonios. Secluded, it has pebbles, stones and rocks – ideal for fishing. It is not organized, but you can relax in the shade of pine trees that grow on all sides.

East of Trypiti, where the Kladi Gorge meets the Libyan sea, the beauty of the natural wilderness has melded with the unusual conglomerate-rock formations occurring where a river meets the sea – at Domata.

The village is located at the mouth of the Samaria Gorge, as it meets the Libyan Sea: it is built on the ancient city of Tara, but today is small and isolated, 56 km south of Chania.

One of the most striking landscapes in south Crete, this beach with its small church to Aghios Pavlos is set at the mouth of the Elygia Gorge. The bay itself is beautiful enough – isolated with crystal-clear deep water, sand and pebbles.
