|The beach of Stavros or "Zorbas' Beach" on the Akrotiri peninsula in Crete|
Stavros beach can be found at the north side of the Akrotiri peninsula (east of Chania). It is a sandy beach in a round bay with a river running through it, where parts of the movie "Zorba the Greek" was shot. One side is dominated by a large bare mountain. Next to the main beach is another more quiet beach. At the seashore net to the beach we also saw what seems to be the remains of an old city or fortress that was chisseled in the rocks (I was curious but couldn't find any info on it). In the rocks near Stavros is an old Minoan cave that can be reached by foot. In the village there are a few taverns to choose from and there are small hotels, and there are apartments and studios for rent.
Postscript: according to the owner of Mama's Place restaurant these formations were created by the sawing of stone blocks (There is even an old wheel of a machine that apparently was used for this). These cut-stones were than transferred to Chania. There they were used for the restoration of the famous lighthouse and the nearby fort.
