Kefali Peak is located at Lithino Cape, 80km southwest of Heraklion, at the tip of Messara. From Kefali (altitude 391m) almost vertical cliffs fall in to the sea, causing awe to anyone. It is one of the most spectacular scenery can be met in Crete, with incredible views to Gavdos and the wild coast of Asterousia.
To get to Kefali you have to drive along the the very bad road crossing the road to Vathi (it is signposted). While driving up to Kefali you’ll see the rocky coastline of Messara. Over Kefali you will see the ruins of a german military establishment of document War 2, used for controlling the south coasts of Crete. There is also a small stone church dedicated to the Holy Cross.
