Beaches in the southeast of Crete
In the southeast of Crete there are some of the greatest and more quiet beaches of Crete. The whole stretch between Ierapatra and the complete southeast of the island (Xerokampos, Kato Zakros) is one beach after the next. Some beaches are more popular because of the tourist concentration (like Makrigialos and Analipsi) but most of them are very quiet. There are also quite a number of good naturist beaches, like the long beach at Kalo Nero, the beach at Ferma, parts of Xerokampos beach and several other smaller private beaches. The main town of Ierapetra has got a long and sandy beach of its own that stretches for kilometers and after that there are several named and unnamed beaches at and in between for instance Agia Fotia, Ferma, Kalo Nero, Mavros Kolimbos, Goudouras, Asprolithos, Makrigialos and Analipsi. The list goes on and on and there is a beach for everybody. The southeast is probably the most unspoiled part of Crete, so the best option for people that are looking to spend a quiet holiday away from the tourist centers.
