Triopetra 2660 hits

Triopetra beach also know as Akoumiani gyalia (actually it is a group with the beaches of Triopetra, Ligres and Agios Pavlos). The beach of Triopetra, named after the three impressive rocks ("Triopetra" means "three stones" in Greek) in the sea, is found 52 kilometers far from Rethymnon and 13 kilometers from the village Akoumia, at the South!! The three stones separate Triopetra beach to 2 beautiful beaches (both named Triopetra). The beach from the west side is called from the locals "Chatzis" beach and the east "Koumantos" beach, cause this persons from the old time they had there store houses that you can still see if you visit this place.

In Triopetra beach you can find clean rooms and excellent food in very good prices. It is more popular to the locals but if you want to visit it, combines the quietness for those who want to relax in an isolated beach and the comfort because you can find restaurants and hotels in the Eastern coast. It is worth visiting in order to enjoy a great sunset.

Agalianos is one of the rare traditional villages which nest in the mountain side of the southern coast of Crete between Agia Galini and Plakias. This place of Crete is famous for its incredible beauty, the wild and beautiful coast with still many picturesque and unorginized beaches.

This area is slowly becoming popular for  holidays or even the second homes, in particular for those which prefer the more traditional and peaceful life.The view to the Libyan sea is impressive. Some 3-5km southern you can find the beaches of Ligres in the west and Triopetra to east.

Agia Fotini 2608 hits
Agia Fotini or Kerames beach (Triopetra beach area, southern coast).Agia Fotini is located in a remote part of Crete, far from the crowds of holiday makers and resorts found elsewhere, but just an hours drive from the historic town of Rethymno with its Venetian streets and Fortress, handicraft and modern shops and the twice weekly market. 
The beaches in either direction are quiet and unspoilt, with many secluded and deserted spots and only the occasional taverna in which to break your journey with a cool drink or a bite to eat.

A short walk to the east brings you to the long sandy beach of Triopetra, or three rocks, while to the west you can reach the palm beach (Preveli beach) and ancient Preveli Monastery within a couple of hours on foot – or less than 20 minutes by car

If you hire a car you can visit the famous springs of Spili, just 30 minutes away, the fishing harbour Aghia Galini and the little known but impressive 
gorge of Patsos or Agios Antonios. The Minoan sites of Faistos or Phestos and its recently discovered port at Komos , and the Roman city of Gortys
are also within easy reach.

A short drive away, the Amari valley is a wonderful place to visit in the heat of the summer, where the traditional mountain villages with their plane trees, cool springs and kafenions are untouched by tourism

In spring the whole area is rich in wild flowers and there are marvellous walks in the mountains and through traditional villages.
