East Crete beaches



Psalidia beach
(126 votes)

If you follow the road to Goudouras from Makrigialos, after Lagada, you can turn right on the dirt road leading to the greenhouses on a small peninsula bounding the east end of the bay. If you follow the dirt road and cross the greenhouses, you'll meet the small pebbly beach of Spilia (cave), with a small cave. This is always empty, but the streams usually bring rubbish. If you follow the road to the west, you'll soon arrive at the remote sandy beach of Psalidia. Psalidia means scissors in Greek and this name is taken after the shape of the bay. The surrounding area is very dry and is covered by low sand dunes and shrubs, but in September it turns to a paradise by thousands of white sand daffodils. Moreover, if from Psalidia you walk alond the coastline to Lagada, you’ll meet many amazing rocks that are ideal for shooting photos.
