Back to Lassithi beaches

Koutsouras beach, Lassithi Crete

The beach of Koutsouras is situated at a distance of 55 kilometers far from Aghios Nicolaos at the Southeast and 20 kilometers eastern to Ierapetra, in front of the homonymous village, with some 800 permanent residents. The beach is pebbly and well protected from the winds.

It is a very good choice for staying, as it offers accommodation facilities in hotels and rooms to let and food and drink in the fish taverns of the settlement. You will also find facilities for swimming and sunbathing (sunbeds, umbrellas), as well as sea sport activities. And, if you feel like wandering around, there are several other beaches in short distance, which you will certainly like.

If you wish to combine swimming with sightseeing, get in your car and drive up to the mountainous village Orino (meaning “mountainous”!), found at the eastern mountainside of mountain Thrypti , at a distance of some 14,5 kilometers at the North, and take a coffee, a refreshment or, much better, a “tsikoudia”, under the shade of the walnut and plane trees, listening to the birds and to the sound of the current water around, as you enjoy the fascinating view.

Or, drive up to the southern mountainsides of mountain Orno , enjoy the wonderful route and take your coffee at Stavrochori , 7 kilometers from Koutsouras , or at Chrysopighi (11 kilometers far from Koutsouras ).

If you like walking, the flat area around the village is ideal; you will walk within a mild landscape , with greenhouses and plantation all around.

If you are around in September, don’t miss to attend the local feast (“panighyri”), in honor of Timios Stavros (“Holy Cross”), on the 14 th of September. The feast takes place at the church of Timios Stavros, found at the top of mountain Thrypti.

Access to the beach is possible from Aghios Nicolaos by rented or private car and motorbikes, and by taxi from Ierapetra, which is found close enough.
