Gialopotamos 2810 hits
Gialopotamos is a nice and unknown beach in south Crete - Rethymno region, between Kerames-Agia Fotini and Preveli Beach. You can reach the beach from Kerames village. 

The beautiful beach of Gialopotamos is formed west of a small hill, on which a few small houses and apartments for renting are built. The beach is sandy and has deep cool waters. The rocks lying around it make it ideal for snorkeling. It is unorganized, appropriate for isolation and for a very quiet holiday.

Helidonia or Drimiskos 2646 hits
The gorge of Drimiskos got its name from the homonymous village, located 15km northeast of the beach of Preveli, in south Rethimno Prefecture and 35 km south from Rethymno Town.


Essentially the gorge starts from the village and goes initially southwestern for 3,5km, continues then south to meet the Libyan Sea at Drimiskianos beach, a few hundred meters east of the famous beach of Preveli.

It is extremely difficult whoever tries to cross over because there are not any sings and crossing requires good physical condition and the total length of Drimiskos gorge exceeds 5km.

We recommend that you start walking the gorge about the middle to Drimiskianos beach, where the degree of difficulty is low. The surrounding mountains and generally the region have little vegetation, but in the canyon the hiker enjoys the green and rugged landscape.

Agia Fotini 2622 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.

Kerames 2589 hits

This village in the municipality of Lambi counts 254 inhabitants. It lies at altitude of 300 m and is situated 43 km away from Rethymnon. This old settlement is recorded in the Venetian censi of the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as in the Turkish and Egyptian censi. The village probably owes its name to the word Potter in Greek.

A resident of the village, Konstantinos Spyridakis, founded an interesting folklore museum with a rich collection of coins, arms belonging to Cretan fighters and other works of art. In the little traditional village there are two souvlaki outlets, with a mini market 2 km far away in Ammoudi.The unspoilt and secluded environment combined with the excellent local cuisine inspires every visitor.It is far from the famous tourist resorts, while Spili with the great variety of shops, tavernas, and amenities can be found in 20km distance. Exploring the general region one can come across with beaches and hidden coves that preserve their natural character without human interruption. The beautiful beaches of Triopetra and Palm Beach are close.

The fishing port of Agia Galini, the charming gorge of Agios Antonios and the ancient monastery of Preveli are worth visiting. In a short driving distance the Amari valley lieswith Plane trees, cool springs and narrow whitewashed lanes and kafenions. The area is rich in wildlife, flora and fauna.

Just 3 kilometres below this traditional hillside village, Agia Fotini is very much part of it. The villagers frequently visit for a meal or just a walk, and guests will be welcome in any of the three kafenions where they can enjoy a cold beer or a perfectly made Greek coffee - and perhaps a game of backgammon with the locals. As well as two kafenions, the village square, which you will find if you wander through the old, narrow streets of white washed houses, also has a spring and a shop for basic supplies.
