The beach of Triopetra is a long and wide sandy beach in the south of the island of Crete. On the east side of the beach are some overhanging cliffs for those who love a little shade. There are also a few taverns on the beach and you can rent sun beds and umbrellas (but the stock is limited). The main part of the beach is "without facilities" - so free of beds, and at the edges of the main beach there is room for naturists. There is also a beautiful sandy beach on the other side of the hill which is mainly naturist beach. Here the beach gradually turns into the beach of Agios Pavlos: alltogether kilometers of sand. The sandy beaches of Triopetra and Agios Pavlos are favored by quite a few people, and this is not without reason. They are long and of good quality. There are not that many pebbles and the water is very clear. The drive to Triopetra is also a pretty one through a beautiful and rough landscape, and vistas of the sea and the Paxamidia islands.

The beach of Triopetra be reached when take the road from Rethymno that leads to Spili. Spili is a nice town for a stop and to have a cup of coffee. From Spili you continue straight and turn right at the exit at Akoumia (indicated by a sign). You drive a bit through the village (there is a beautiful Byzantine church with frescoes), and after that it is about a half an hour drive on a good road. Triopetra Beach is popular with people who love peace and quiet. There are a number of taverns and accommodations in and around Triopetra Beach, but it's not really what you would call a village. However a few hundred meters from the beach (on the road) there is a tavern that also functions as a mini-market, but if you are planning to stay for a long time in Triopetra and you want to take food and drinks with you, I advise you to do some shopping in Spili or Akoumia. In Akoumia there is also a mini market and a very good bakery (near the exit to Triopetra on the other side of the road).
