Beaches in the area of Akoumia & A. Pavlos

These regions are in the south of the Rethymnon Prefecture, between Preveli and Aghia Galini overlooking the Libyan sea: they are in the deme of Aghios Vasileios.

Here are located many particularly enticing beaches: that of Keramiana Gialia to the south of Kerame, of Akoumiani Gialia on the road from Akoumia to the Libyan sea, and those of Aghios Pavlos around the tourist centre of the same name.

Leaving the Plakias beaches behind on the road east, we find that of Keramiana Gialia.

Those on the road as it leaves Kerame are the ones in question. Small, with sand and pebbles, surrounded by massive rocks. Going from east to west along the beaches of Keramiani Gialia, the first one meets is that of Gialopotamos (or Gialopotama).

These are set on the frontage, at the exit of a road to Sachtouria village. The successive sandy beaches present gigantic sand-dunes, sea-worn caves and blue waters. Beginning from the western beaches, the first we come to is that of Stomio.
