Sarakiniko beach

Sarakiniko Beach, located 1.5km north of the port of Gavdos, Karave, is renowned for its beauty and interesting past. It is named after the Saracen pirates who at one time made the island their base of operations. The cove bay faces northwards, and is known for its striking, golden sand and crystal-clear shallows. It’s also a great spot for camping, with basic amenities, rental cars, and nearby taverns and mini markets. Those looking to explore further will find evidence of a prehistoric settlement on Kavos Hill, east of the beach, and two ancient Roman cottages and oil pressing systems. A noteworthy structure is the building where the exiled founder of the Greek People’s Liberation Army, Aris Velouchiotis, once lived. It can be identified by the flags of Greece and Europe, and a sign commemorating the exiled communists.
