Rodopou Peninsula



The barren peninsula of Rodopou only has a few villages clustered at its base and the rest of it is uninhabited. A paved road goes as far as Afrata village, then becomes a dirt track which heads north.
It is possible to reach the Diktynna Sanctuary (Menies Beach) at the northern end of the peninsula with a 4x4 vehicle. This was the most important religious sanctuary in the region under the Romans

Menies bay is where the sanctuary of Diktynna is located on the peninsula of Rodopou. A little piece of paradise at the end of a long (17km) bumpy dirt road that still invites you to have a swim even in late January.

The temple of Diktynna was located on the hill to the right (south) of the beach and several objects found there - such as the statue of Diktynna with a hound - are exhibited in the archaeological museum of Chania.

 

Access is possible only by a 4WD car , as well as by private or rented special motorbikes, since the 23 kilometers unasphalted road, usually being in bad condition, is difficult for conventional vehicles.
