Theseus village is private settlement that is located in the steep bank of Cape Bourouni, 24km west of Heraklion and 3km east of Ligaria. There is a very deep, pebbly beach in front of the village with flat sea, that is artificial and has been created for the habitants of the village. The seabed is initially shallow, but turns to a steep "cliff" after some meters. There are umbrellas and a local canteen offering refreshments to the habitants of the village.
If you are not a habitant or a visitor, you are not allowed to get your car to the beach and you have to park near the village exit. You are, however, allowed to walk 1km down to the beach, but the grade is so steep that return will be very exhaustive. The beach doesn't deserve this effort, unless you are allowed to get your car to the beach. As an alternative, you could come there by boat from the harbor of Pantanassa.
If you are a keen snorkeller, the very deep water around Theseus vilage is ideal for fishing.
