Agia Roumeli

The beach of Agia Roumeli is at the exit of Samaria gorge in front of the homonymous settlement. The coast has very small black pebbles and the waters of the Libyan sea are blue. It is an organized beach and there are bars where you can taste amazing Cretan delicacies.

To the east of the pier of the port of Agia Roumeli there is an even smaller beach which also has beach umbrellas and sun beds, but it is much more exposed to the wind.

Further east along the coast, you will find smaller amazing beaches, ideal for isolation.

Thousands of hikers who cross the Samaria gorge choose Agia Roumeli for a refreshing swim in order to then take the boat to Loutro and Sfakia (east) or Sougia and Paleochora ( west).

Agia Roumeli is a small coastal village in southwestern Crete built near the ancient town of Tarra. It belongs administratively to the municipality of Sfakia of Chania and is located between Sfakia and Paleochora.

The White Mountains with its high peaks and deep gorges keep Agia Roumeli isolated in their embrace. No road reaches there and connection with neighboring areas is performed only from the sea by boat.
