Kali Limenes beach, Heraklion Crete

Situated some 80 kilometres far from Heraklion and 25 kilometres from Mires at the Southwest, this pebbly beach is in front of the village of Kali Limenes within an amazingly beautiful natural environment. The beach is very well protected from the winds; in fact it is the only alternative for swimming in the whole are, when there are strong winds. According to the christian tradition, it is in this place that St. Paul had stopped on his way to Rome to go to trial.

Not much organised, the beach does not offer any accommodation facilities; for lodging you should try in the nearest inland towns, as Mires. Neither will you find here facilities for swimming or sea sports. But the sea is marvellous, people are few, the one or two small taverns have good fresh fish and you will meet only the locals who love this beach beacause it is quiet and far from mass tourism. An additional advantage is that, thanks to the high temperature, swimming is possible throughout the year, winter included. Even the swallows don't leave the area in winter!

Access from Heraklion is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes. But, the best way to really enjoy the place is by yatch, rented or private; it is the only way to visit places, where only few people can reach.
