The Agiofarago beach will satisfy even the most demanding fans of nature and sea. Located 80 km. south of the city of Heraklion, the visitor has to cross the Agiofarago gorge to get to the beach. The easy hike between the vertical walls of rock is simply amazing! You will come across large caves with hermits and the chapel of St. Anthony. The fine pebbles beach on the exit of the gorge is famous for its beauty and the crystal blue sea, which is usually very calm. To get there follow the route Pitsidia – Sivas – Odigitria and then take the dirt road leading to Agiofarago, for about 5 km. At the end of the dirt road you can park and start the 20 to 30 minutes easy trek, to the beach. It’s really worth it.
