Kokina Grema Beach - 1.4 out of 5 based on 264 votes

The secluded beach of Kokkina Grema (i.e. Red Cliffs) is located 55km west of Chania, 28km southwest of Kissamos and 3km west of Platanos village. The beach is named after the huge reddish peninsula at its north end.

It is located at the exit of a small gorge, starting from Platanos village, shaping the Bay of Lygia. Kokkina Grema is a rough beach, with pebbles, ideal for camping and staying remote. There are absolutely no facilities nearby, but there are many trees next to the beach offering natural shade.

Access to Kokkina Grema is not easy, because the dirt track that leads there from Platanos is in poor condition. You have to drive till you meet the picturesque chapel close to the beach.
