Agios Antonios at Kato Selles (Saint Anthony) is located 30km northwest of Agios Nikolaos, in the well hidden and unexplored northern shores of Mirabello area, 3km north of the village Selles. The area has several small beaches where you can go by driving north from the village Selles mainly in a passable dirt road. In the region you will not find anything else, but some cottages and farms.

All of the few beaches in north Mirabello are pebbly and surrounded by rough rocks. Similarly, Agios Antonios has some small beaches with white round pebbles and stones, making them ideal for fishing, but are not suitable for swimming for families. A significant deterrent to swim in these are the frequent big waves that hit the north Cretan shores and the stony seabed. If the weather is not windy, the beaches of Agios Antonios are a very good choice for isolation.

If you head 400m east of Agios Antonios,, there is the beach of Patsavra. It is a secluded beach with lots of pebbles, where many locals prefer to swim. If you head westwards, in front of the village of Kato Selles, you will first find the stony beach of Vato Mouri and then the rockier beach of Agios Antonios (St Anthony). On the beach there are some tamarisk trees, under which you can relax. Just next to the beach, there is the cavernous chapel of Agios Antonios. A few meters further east, amid the rocky shore, there is a tiny beach called Lagadaki with crystal clear blue water. When the sea is calm, unfortunately not very often, Lagadaki is ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
