Asprolithos 2863 hits
The name Asprolithos (white stones) derives from the white pebbles which can be found at the beach. Asprolithos beach is a picturesque sand and pebble beach in the southeast coast of Crete in between Kalo Nero (which means “Good Water”) settlement and very close to Goudouras village, 12km east of the tourist resort of Makrigialos and close to the Kapsa Monastery. 

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.

Goudouras 2665 hits

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.


East Kalami
East Kalami 2661 hits
Kalami beaches (it is a group of small beaches stretching for about 1 kilometer and parallel to the asphalt road, where other beaches are visible from the street and others not) is located between Kapsa Beach-Monastery and Goudouras Village, 11km east from Makrigialos, very close to Goudouras. 

The area is full with small coves with small quiet beaches, too far from busy centres. Some of the coves are very easily accessible, because the road passes just next to them.

The first easy finding beach you meet driving some 2km from Kapsa is called West Kalami and is named after the reeds (kalami in greek) that are next to it. It is a nice pebbly beach, perfect for seclusion with a spring with fresh water on the beach! There are no tall trees on the beach, but there is a big cave offering natural shade to its visitors, all day round. In order to locate that, you should note that the beach is located directly below the chapel of Agii Saranda. The beach is surrounded by high rocks, thus accessing it from the road is quite tough, but still possible.
