    A wonderful place. Still lived in by monks.
    Made us giggle as it says "No mobile phones to be used". A monk what chanting an incantation, next thing his phone rang, he broke off and answered it in the church.... just made us giggle.

    One of the most beautiful wild beaches in the Chania region.

    If you're thinking of checking it out, here are a few things to keep in mind:

    There are 3-4 regular bus trips daily from the central bus station in Chania. The drivers are pros who know the route well, and the price of one ticket won't break the bank.

    The last stretch of the road has some seriously steep turns. If you're not confident behind the wheel or if you've got a rental car you're not familiar with, it might be better to stick to public transport.

    The path down to the beach is rocky and gravelly, so proper hiking boots are a must. Don't attempt it in anything less.

    The swimming spot is fantastic, but if the weather is bad, it's safer to stay out of the water. Deceptive currents and strong waves can be a challenge, even for strong swimmers.

    Forget about finding restaurants or shops in the area, so grab your supplies before you head out.

    Last but not least, get ready to make some goat friends. They'll likely approach you looking for a snack. Consider bringing them a little something to munch on, or, even better, a container of fresh water.

    Enjoy your beach day!

    It’s a 30 minutes walk down and the same back up. Wear confortable shoes and bring water. It’s a gorgeous area to walk through
