Keratokambos, South Crete

There are many places in Crete which require a love of winding, precipitously-edged roads and the driving of them, to reach. Keratokambos – in the last 12 kilometres approach, will not disappoint the visitor in this respect, but the road is perfectly well surfaced and manageable as it winds down to the beach. This is a small place – popular with Greek visitors as well as those from further away. But small is the word. The place offers just a handful of buildings, two shops, five tavernas and two cafes when it is in full swing. There are good places to stay, a long slender sand and pebble beach. It’s an attractive location, the mountain backdrop and the stretch of taverna tables lining the water’s edge in the partial shade of pine trees. The tavernas offer refreshingly good prices for fine, fresh fish.
