Agiofarago beach south of Zaros in Crete

Agiofarago beach is located at the exit of Agiofarago Gorge, which in turn is located south of the villages of Zaros and Sivas in the regional unit of Heraklion.

 

Agiofarago beach south of Zaros in Crete.

Here the walk ends in Agiofarago Gorge.

 

 

The only way to get here is on foot. The walk to the beach takes between 40-60 minutes one way. Is it worth the long walk to the beach? Yes, I think so, because the walk is as nice, and easy, as the beach is cool.

 

Agiofarago beach in Crete is surrounded by high cliffs and it is common to see soaring Griffon vultures.

Agiofarago beach is not only good for sunbathing and swimming, it is also strikingly beautiful. The beach consists of pebbles mixed with gravel. It is getting deep almost at once, so the beach is not particularly suitable for small children.

There are no tavernas, so you have to bring food and drinks. It is difficult to find shade, but it can be found under the rocks when the sun is "right" in the sky.
