Goudouras village, is a coastal settlement with approximately 300 permanent residents near the Cape of Erithreo at the Libyan Sea, Lassithi Prefecture and 16km east from Makrigialos.
It is developing slowly to a sea resort, there are some remarkable sandy beaches like Kalami, Asprolithos and Goudouras beach, and you can find also taverns, lodgings and a small shelter for fishing boats.
It is a farming community / vegetable store situated on a fertile plain directly at the sea, with lots of greenhouses and a couple of farms and houses. Behind the village there are the Zakros-Ziros mountains and the area becomes quite deserted. In Goudouras the road turns north towards the traditional villages of Agia Triada, Ziros and the beaches of Xerokampos and Kato Zakros.
The nearby coastal village of Goudouras is a center for agriculture and you will see many greenhouses that are covered with plastic. There are no facilities like umbrellas and sunbeds on the beach of Asprolithos, there is just sand and seawater.
It’s a quiet beach although it is located just next the asphalt road. The problem with the beach is that there can be quite some wind here. In 2008 as we drove by, after a couple of stormy days it looked as if a large part of the beach had disappeared.
