Xerokambos beach

Nestled in the southeastern part of Crete, Xerokambos is an arid yet eerie landscape of stark rocks, steep mountains and few olive groves. It’s one of the most remote regions of the island and can be accessed via the road linking Sitia (and Ierapetra) to Ziros or the road from Zakros. Although sparsely populated, the beauty of this area has recently attracted some tourism, with a few rooms, mini markets and taverns popping up.

The beaches of Xerokambos abound with a variety of textures, from rocks to coarse pebbles to small pebbles, golden sand, white sand and even clay. The main area is Ambelos, located east of Cape Trahilos and home to the picturesque church of Saint Nicholas. Here visitors can find the beaches of Gerontolakkos or Agios Nikolaos, Argilos and Vourlia, as well as a protected white sand lily area. Whether looking for a tranquil escape or a beachside spa experience, Xerokambos has something for everyone.
