Listis beach is situated 69 kilometres southeast of Iraklion, between the towns of Kastri (2 kilometres to the west) and Tsoutsouras. To get to the beach, you can follow a road that links Kastri and Tsoutsouras, or you can disembark at Kamboula’s beach and walk east. Whichever way you choose, the effort will be worth it. This small, unorganised beach is considered one of the most beautiful in Crete, characterised by its sand and crystal clear shallow waters. It is also noteworthy for its large rocks in the sea, as well as those scattered along the shore. The seabed is generally sandy and is excellent for swimming and playing in the water. If you swim east of the beach, you will find a small sandy beach at Xirokambi, as well as the imposing rock of Listis. According to local legend, a bandit used to live in its caves. The caves can be reached from the main road and not from the beach. On the hilltop, you will find some ruins of a small sanctuary from ancient times.
