Domata Beach, Sfakia - 3.6 out of 5 based on 369 votes

The beautiful beach Domata is located 7km east of Sougia and 58km south of Chania, at position Tseses. The beach is the ending point of the wild and rugged gorge of Klados.

The beach is beautiful with fine pebbles and crystal clear blue waters. If you dig in the sand, you can find fresh water. As expected, the region has no roads and no infrastructures. The numerous pine trees near the beach offer natural shade and a good camping opportunity.

Domata is one of the finest intact beaches in Greece. There will be only you, the sea, the sun and the pine trees.

Access to Domata is possible through E4 trail that heads east and leads to the Agia Roumeli (3 -4 hours on foot). However, beware that the slopes are very steep and dangerous, as the trail climbs at an altitude of 700m.

Thanks to the action of water, a unique natural monument has been created. The name Domata (meaning “roofs”) comes from the staggered arrangement of conglomerate rocks that remind of roofs. The vast quantities of pebbles and dirt that are brought here by the gorge, the perpetual undulation of the sea and the air have contributed to their creation.
