Cretan shores

Summer in Crete does never stop. You just have to learn how to find it...

The overall coastline of Crete is 1046km long, with extremely beautiful beaches along it. The north coastline consists mainly of long, sandy beaches that are mainly affected by winds. North coast beaches are generally easily accessed and thus, are more popular.

The visitor can relax in one of the numerous hospitable, well equipped beaches mainly on the more developed north coast and the big touristic regions. All of them offer the visitor a wide range of services, amenities and security: coffee, drinks, food, water sports and lifeguards. Most of them have been awarded with the blue European flag for being clean and fully equipped. However, for the romantics and nature lovers there are many pristine beaches of incomparable beauty especially in the south. There generally applies a rule that says that the more difficult to reach a beach, the more beautiful it is. And indeed this rule seems to hold for the beaches of Crete, taking into account the unique routes to be followed through wild gorges or snake-like roads with breathtaking views to the Libyan Sea.
