This part of the south coast has some of the most beautiful beaches on Crete, and most of them are happily devoid of mass tourism and crowds. It is usually not so hard to find a beach, a cove or a lagoon where you can be completely alone.
A few kilometers away and clearly visible from the house are long strips of sandy beaches, some of which have a small taverna. Below you find some of the beaches we love the most – and they are all within a 10 km drive.
Crete is really ideal for snorkeling and the beaches along the south coast are preferable to those on the north coast. You will find some of the best spots close to ZorbaZen House.
