Kaminaki Beach, situated 58km south of Heraklion, is nestled at the mouth of the Perivoliano Gorge, also known as Gerontzou, in the southeast of Asterousia Mountains. This rugged landscape of inaccessible gorges, bare rocks, steep cliffs, and remote beaches can only be accessed by boat. Kaminaki is a pebbly beach perfect for seclusion and fishing, as typically there are no other people around. 400m to the west is a small beach in Agio Pnevma, however it is not as stunning as Kaminaki.
700m to the east is Alykapounda beach, which features strikingly turquoise waters and a Delta-shaped sea cave. It is sheltered by Cape Alykapounda and, if you venture around the cape to the west, you will find Alykevra. Here, a small bay with a spring provides a source of fresh water for sheep flocks and a pebble beach, at Prikovlyhada, just 1.5m wide. Caves are located to the west of the beach and are worth exploring.
