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 swim mainly in the central beach, just in front of the seaside taverns. However, there are several great and quiet beaches for someone to explore nearby.
One of these serene beaches is located on the east side of the settlement, beyond the river of Samaria gorge and below the ruins of ancient Tarra. Here beautiful rocky formations and cavities are formed at position Zeromouri, which have beautiful pebbly beaches in front of them. These beaches are usually deserted. Even further, the beach becomes rocky and suitable for nudism and snorkelling and extends to the east to the beach of Selouda or Agios Pavlos.
