Agia Roumeli, The Peaceful Beach in Southwest Crete | 03 June 2015
A beautiful and peaceful beach awaits you right at the end of Samaria Gorge – one of the longest gorges in Europe, in the southwestern part of Crete. Agia Roumeli is a quiet village between Sfakia and Paleochora, which can only be accessed by ferry or by foot through the Samaria Gorge. The stunning White Mountains keeps the area isolated and secluded. The village is an ideal destination to relax by the calm beach and to experience the pure crystal clear waters of the Libyan Sea. Agia Roumeli remains authentic and traditional, so you can enjoy the sea and mountain views with an amazing natural beauty. Tip: The best time to visit the beach is after the departure of the ferries - before noon and in the late afternoon.
