Salamias beach

Situated 74km south of Heraklion, the bay of Salamia is nestled between Agios Ioannis and Tripiti. Boats and a trek across the Avolakias beach are the only ways to access the secluded area. The name salamia is derived from the Italian word salamentum (brine) and the locals still collect salt from the area.

The Asterousia Mountains’ Salamiano Gorge can be found within the region. Boasting coarse sand beaches, wild olive trees and crystal clear waters, it is the perfect spot for swimming, fishing and naturism. It is also an important habitat for many rare species of avifauna and plants, making it one of Crete’s few untouched natural havens.
