The beach that has been loved like no other for selfies! It is located near Chania but is very crowded!

3. Avlaki cove, Katholiko, Chania

The little gem of Akrotiri that has been very popular lately. Access is difficult, as it requires a one-hour hike that initially passes through the Katholiko monastery.

A natural sculpture with narrow passages, waterfalls and impressive colors that change according to the daylight. In the rivers make sure not to wear chemical sunscreens!
