The broader region of Xerokampos, the most southeastern portion of the Lasithi Prefecture, is one that has not been sullied, and remains one of the most remote areas of Crete. It contains a large number of enticing coves and awesome beaches.
Generally these beaches have shallow clear waters, but also many currents. It is good for fishing and a destination of note for relaxation and total relaxation.
Starting the trip through the beaches of Xerokampos, working south to north, the first one meets is that of Livari.
The beach lies on the Gulf of Atherinolakkos. It has pale-coloured small pebbles and blue-green crystalline waters. Not organized, it is thus suited to calm and relaxation and to the pursuit of nudism too!
This is situated between Goudouras and Xerokampos, at the mouth of the Aghia Irini gorge. Sheltered and secluded, it has pebbles, very clear and blue-green waters and a rocky seabed.
With its small natural harbour (for the small boats of the locals), this is a quiet secluded beach with pebbles, sand and very clear water. A few tamarisks offer some shade to the visitors.
By Cape Trachilos in a small bay is this, or Aghios Nikolaos as it can be called. The last is from a small church – with its blue dome, it sits on a hill behind the beach. The beach has sand, and shallow blue waters.
