Gialopotama is located about 45km south of Rethymno city, 4km south of the village Kerames and near exit of a small valley, where a small stream flows. The beautiful unknown beach of Gialopotama is formed west of a small hill, on which a few small houses and apartments for renting were built in the last decades.
The beach is sandy with rocks in places. The rocky bottom makes it ideal for snorkeling and spear fishing. It is unorganized, appropriate for isolation. Especially, it's east part, where huge boulders are dispersed, can be visited for naturism.
Gialopotama can be accessed by car via asphalt road from Kerames village or via a paved track starting east of Preveli beach and coming along the coastline of Drymiskos.
