"A collage of natural beauty, Preveli Beach is like an exclamation mark idling at the mouth of the Megalopotamos River at the end of its meander through the rugged Kourtaliotiko Gorge.

Where the canyon meets the beach, the stream's chilly water tumbles through a jungle of oleander endemic palm trees into a lagoon hemmed in by soft sand and the shimmering Med. Its stunning setting makes Preveli one of Crete’s most celebrated strands.
