The village and the beach of Agia Fotia in the southeast of the island of Crete

Nederlands Agia Fotia Agia Fotia is a coastal village at about a quarter of an hour drive east of Ierapatra (13 kilometers), in the south east of the island of Crete. It is in between two other resorts, Ferma and Koutsouras. The area is very quiet compared to other pieces of Crete. In order to reach Agia Fotia you take the exit leading from the main road that runs between Ierapetra and the seaside resort of Makrigialos. The road down the hill is very steep. At the end of the road down at the beach you can park your car in front of the Agia Fotia Taverna / Apartments. Markos Studios also has its own parking lot. There are a couple of tavernas where you can eat and in the valley you can see the Church of St. Foteini. There are beach beds and umbrellas for rent on Agia Fotia beach.

The beach of Agia Fotia I estimate about 150 a 200 meters long. It is a sandy beach and in the center is very wide. The beach is surrounded by very high mountains and it is very picturesque. Here and there you find trees for some shade, but there are also a number of umbrellas and sun beds for rent.

The butterfly gorge near Agia Fotia and Koutsouras

Between Agia Fotia and Koutsouras, about 1 kilometer east of Koutsouras, lies at 400 meters from the road the entrance to the Butterfly Gorge. The first two kilometers are pretty easy to walk, and after that it becomes more difficult. You can walk between the high rising mountains and depending on when you get there you can also see small streams and waterfalls. In 1993 there was a large fire in this area which destroyed many of the pine trees. Slowly the area has been recovering.

Hotels, apartments and studios in Agia Fotia

There are not many accommodations in the village. Agia Fotia Apartments has 6 rooms with sea view and Markos Studios has 11. Furthermore, there are only a few tavernas (three on the beach and one a bit inland towards the church - where there is one more place where you can rent a room) and a few private houses. It is a place to slow down and swim in the sea. Most visitors are day people. When we visited it was very quiet. Perhaps on the weekends when the Greeks themselves are free it can be more busy. It is worth taking a look at Agia Fotia because this is one of the prettiest bays in the south east of Crete.

Agia Fotia Restaurant - Agia Fotia - Crete
Agia Fotia Restaurant

The Agia Fotia Restaurant is situated at a 10 meters distance from the beach of the village with a view of the sea. There is plenty of choice in appetizers and main courses and the service is friendly. It is also inexpensive. We ordered tzaziki, cheese pies, spinach pies and a tuna salad (without the sauce but with oil and vinegar instead) for our lunch. The bread was good and fresh and the tzaziki was thick and with plenty of cucumber. No complaints.

Our Verdict: an 8,5 out of 10

tip One of the nicest restaurants that we encountered on our travels through Crete. The River Taverna is located on the right hand side of the road that leads the main road along the south coast to the beach below. It is indicated by a sign. You have to go down a long staircase and then walk along a path that goes through the kitchen garden of the tavern. The service is most friendly by a very sweet and modest man who is also the owner. We ate here a few times because it was very good. All the food is fresh and made on the spot, the portions are ample. The first time we got even such large portions that we had few dishes packed up to take home. We tried during our visits the zucchini balls, spinach pies, the River Salad (very nica and a huge bowl), the tzatziki, stuffed cabbage leaves, fries and rocket salad with walnuts and Parmesan cheese. As desert they gave us some home made ice cream! Everything was fantastic and the prices are quite right: highly recommended.

Our verdict: a 9,5 out of 10
