Arvi beach, Heraklion Crete

Some 86 kilometres far from Heraklion at the Southeast, in front of the homonymous small village, it is found the beach of Arvi. Protected from the winds blowing in the area, it is a pebbly beach, with shallow enough sea at the part in front of the village; the sea gets deeper at the eastern part.

Not much organised, the beach does not offer swimming and sunbathing facilities (sunbeds, ubrellas) nor sea sport facilities; but the sea is crystal clear and  the beach quiet enough without big crowds of visitors.

A few rooms to let are available for accommodation in the small settlement at the beach; in the few taverns of the settlement the visitor may enjoy fresh fish, tasty local dishes and, of course abundant Cretan wine and "tsikoudia".

Eastern to the beach it is found the exit of the Arvi gorge, as well as the homonymous Monastery. Choosing this place for staying, the visitor will find a combination of marvellous sea and calmness, with a magnificent natural environmet and sightseeing.

Access from Heraklion is possible only by rented or private cars and motorbikes, via the village of Viannos.
