TOURS IN CRETE

Cretan Beaches

Crete, the largest Greek island, boasts a coastline adorned with some of the most stunning beaches in the Mediterranean. Elafonisi Beach, located in the southwest, is renowned for its unique pink sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters. Visitors are captivated by the shallow lagoon, creating a surreal blend of colors as they explore the small islet just offshore.

Matala Beach, situated on the southern coast, is not only a picturesque stretch of golden sand but also holds historical significance. Famous for its sea caves carved into the cliffs, Matala was a hippie haven in the 1960s and ’70s. Today, it welcomes travelers with a laid-back atmosphere and the opportunity to explore the intriguing caves.

For those seeking a more secluded escape, Agiofaraggo Beach, accessible by a scenic hike through a gorge, offers a pristine setting. The secluded beach is surrounded by towering cliffs, creating a sense of tranquility and seclusion. Its clear waters make it ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

Venturing to the northwest, the Gramvousa and Balos beaches are a dynamic duo of natural beauty. Gramvousa, accessible by boat or a challenging hike, is crowned by a Venetian fortress offering panoramic views. Balos, adjacent to Gramvousa, is celebrated for its shallow, turquoise lagoon and the striking contrast of white sand and pinkish-hued shells.

Each of these beaches contributes to Crete’s reputation as a paradise for sun-seekers, offering a diverse range of landscapes and experiences for those exploring this enchanting island.
