Agia Roumeli is a small secluded village, located 56km south of Chania city, on a wide bay shaped at the exit of the Samaria Gorge. Thousands of visitors, descending the gorge, reach this place every day and enjoy their bath in the main beach, Gialos, stretching in front of the taverns. However, there are some very nice and quiet beaches around, one could explore. One of these beaches is Mashali and is actually the west part of the bay of Agia Roumeli.
There is a second dock for boats and a lonely tavern with rooms. Next to this dock, there are two beautiful beaches with fine pebble. The tavern provides sunbeds, umbrellas and canoes for free. On these beaches, there are large rocks that provide shade, between which nudists may feel isolated. Little attention is needed when you walk in the main road, from the tavern to the dock, because goats on the mountain often cause stonefalls. Stonefalls are not very dangerous, but in order to keep safe, avoid walking next to the mountain walls, but keep on the left side.
If from Mashali you swim or kayak beyond the western edge of the beach, you will meet three caves, in front which "XS size" pebbly beaches are formed! They are known as Spilies sto Marmaro (i.e. Caves in Marble).
