Kommos beach, Heraklion Crete

Situated at a distance of 64 kilometres far from Heraklion at the Southwest, 9 kilometres south western to Mires and 2 kilometres far from the inland village of Pitsidia, the sandy beach of Kommos, successive to that of Kalamaki is found within the Messara bay. The beach is very much affected by the strong winds blowing in the area. The beach is one of the places where the sea turtles careta-careta leave their eggs; walking on the beach you can easily see the nests, which are signaled and protected.

Close to the inland towns, the beach is organised well enough. The visitor will find accommodation facilities in hotels and rooms to let at a short distance from the beach. A camping is available at Pitsidia. Fish taverns offer good sea food. Apart from the marvellous sea, you will also find swimming and sunbathing facilities (sunbeds, umbrellas etc), as well as seasport facilities. One of the best features of the beach are the tamarisk trees, at the very edge of the sea, offering rich shade to the swimmers.
The northern end of the sea, close to Kalamaki, is not organised at all, remote enough and nudism tolerant. The southern end is situated in front of the archaeological site of Kommos, a very important Minoan settlement; access to the site is not allowed to the public.

Access from Heraklion is possible by rented or private cars and motorbikes. From Pitsidia you should take the road from Mires to Matala and turn right to the dirt track; you will arrive to the beach after a 2 kilometres' drive.

Kommos, beach southern to the archaeological site
Situated at a distance of 66 kilometres far from Heraklion at the Southwest, 11 kilometres south western to Mires and 3,5 kilometres far from the inland village of Pitsidia, the sandy beach of Kommos is continued at the South of the archaeological site; this too, is found within the Messara bay. The beach is very much affected by the strong winds blowing in the area; however, the rocks at the end of the beach, stop the winds and the sea there is somehow calmer.

Close to the inland towns, the beach is rather organised. The visitor will find accommodation facilities in hotels and rooms to let at a short distance from the beach. A camping is available at Pitsidia. Fish taverns offer good sea food. Apart from the marvellous sea, you will also find some swimming and sunbathing facilities. The southern end is situated close to the archaeological site of Kommos, a very important Minoan settlement; access to the site is not allowed to the public.
Access from Heraklion is possible by rented or private cars and motorbikes. At a distance of some 2,5 kilometres from Pitsidia, on the road from Mires to Matala, you shoud turn right to the dirt track; you will arrive to the beach after a 1,5 kilometres' drive.
