Maridaki 2728 hits
Apart from its lovely beach, Maridaki is worth visiting because of its huge plane trees, under which runs plentiful drinkable water that gushes out of natural springs. An ancient church that stands there is also a noticeable feature of the village. A litle to the west of Maridaki stands the monastery of Agios Nikitas with a church built in the rock and a lovely beach. The view from Ai Nikitas to the East towards Tsoutsouras, Dermato and Keratokampos is particularly lovely.300 m to the west of the monastery you will come upon the chapel of Agios Antonios which is set in a unique landscape of palm trees and carob trees.

The south coast of Asterousia mountain range offers a unique experience to those who will dare to explore it. There are hundreds of secluded beaches, small gorges ending up to the sea, caves and geological formations that reward all the efforts.

Agios Nikitas 2635 hits
Situated at the southern side of the Asterousia mountains with a distance of more than 85 kilometres far from Heraklion at the South - Southeast and some 20 kilometres far from Tsoutsouros and 15 km from Maridaki beach-village, Aghios Nikitas is a pebbly beach affected by the winds; what is interesting is the palm tree wood, fortunately still unknown to big crowds.  Not organised at all , it does not offer any accommodation or food and drink facilities; you will love the beach only if you are fan of isolation, of natural environment and...of the palm trees.Access from Heraklion is possible only by rented or private cars and motorbikes through a not asphalted roadway from Tsoutsouros. Driving from Maridaki, you will find the beach after you have passed the Monastery of Aghios Nikitas.
