Livadia Coves, located near the village of Livadia, 72 kilometers southwest of Chania and 31 kilometers south of Kissamos. This area is not as popular among visitors due to the rocky and wavy beaches that are more suited to the locals and those seeking solitude. There are a few tourist amenities in the area, however, and the coastline is an ideal destination for snorkeling on windless days.
The village of Livadia is part of the European hiking path E4, which runs from the village of Sfinari to Elafonisi. This route offers a stunning display of Cretan scenery, including olive and locust trees, black and red volcanic rocks, and the sea-beaten shoreline. To access the beaches, you can walk along the shoreline of the village until you reach the last large black rock formations. Behind these rocks are a cluster of small ponds with greenish water. These sandy and pebbly coves are great for swimming, or you can choose to go for a dip in the pebbly beach inside the harbour.
