Stomio Beach

Situated 74km south of Chania and 1km north of Chrisoskalitissa monastery, Stomio is a secluded and relatively unknown beach in the Elafonissi area of Crete. Characterised by a rocky and wavy shore, the beach consists of large pebbles and some patchy stretches of sand. With its cool waters and deep sea, it is not the ideal spot for families; however it is perfect for those who want to escape the crowds. The area takes its name from the river Vathi, whose mouth is located here, and a reservoir which stores its waters. There is a small tavern closeby, but the beach is not organised. Accessible via the main road from Chania to Chrisoskalitissa / Elafonissi, Stomio also features a disused plaster factory which was the subject of a 2010 reopening effort which was successfully prevented by local protests. Across the bay lies a scenic chapel (Agii Theodori) and a stunning pine grove which stretches up the mount.
