Not organised at all, as it also happens with the rest of the beaches up to the tourist resort of Goudouras, the beach is ideal for a relaxing swim in a crystal clear cool sea, without the facilities of the organised beaches, but also without the big crowds of them. Of course, due to the vicinity to the Monastery nudism should be avoided.
Apart from swimming and relaxing, it is worth visiting the Monastery and the gorge, whose exit is behind it. And, if you are here on the 29 th of August, don’t miss to attend the local feast (“panighyri”) in honor of Aghios Ioannis (St. John).
A good alternative for swimming is the nearby beach of Langada, which is beach clothing optional.
Access from Aghios Nicolaos, Ierapetra or Sitia is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes.
