Agia Fotini beach
Agia Fotini, Rethymno, Greece
A 60 minutes drive.
A poor asphalt road that leads to Keramiani Gialia stops near the local harbor of Agia Fotini, also known as Agia Fotia. Agia Fotia has some stunning tiny pebble beaches, ideal for snorkeling and swimming. These are surrounded by marvellous boulders. The traditional tavern of Stavros, built on an old carob repository, serves fresh fish near the harbor and you can find some rooms to stay there. It's an amazing place, reminding of Greek islands of the old '60s. The tavern offers some umbrellas and showers for free. There is a small river near Agia Fotia, that forms a small green wood. If you follow the path that heads north, along the river, you will meet an incredibly high palm tree and after 50m you will find the old church of Agia Fotini, near a small house with a nice garden. If you walk 5' west of the tavern, along the rocky shore, you will meet another small pebbly beach.
Just before Spíli at Kissou Kambos you turn left towards Kerames follow the sign. The road goes high through the mountains before winding down to the sea.
