Votsalaki (or Botzalaki) is located 71km southeast of Agios Nikolaos and 36km east of Ierapetra, on the west end of Goudouras, at the position of Aspra Chomata (White Soil). It is situated amid the arid and rugged landscape of East Crete, close to the exit of the wild Gorge Asprolithos.
Votsalaki is one of the most amazing unknown beaches of Crete. It has small pebbles and crystal clear waters. The sea color is magical, taking green, blue and reddish hues due to the local soils. Votsalaki is quite secluded, although it is next to the main road. It's west end is ideal for nudism, because the cliffs surrounding the beach look like walls and protect you from the prying eyes.
You can drive to Votsalaki from Ierapetra by getting the main road heading east to Sitia, along the south coastline of Crete. After Makrigialos, get the road to Goudouras and stop 2.5km after Moni Kapsa. Another way is to get the bus to Goudouras, but the services are not frequent.
