Kalo Horafi beach

Kalo Horafi is a beautiful area in Crete, located 37km east of Rethymno and 43km west of Heraklion. It is characterized by its wild Cretan landscape, comprising of the Talean mountains and green ravines. At the site of the former 317 Agii Pateres Pelekida (317 Holy Fathers) monastery, there is a newer chapel commemorating the monastery.

From Chnaris tavern, located along the highway, a 200m dirt track leads to Vossako beach, a small and never busy pebbly beach that looks west. Apart from the tavern and some villas, there is nothing else in the area. Close to the beach is Vosako monastery, which can be accessed via Doxaro village and takes 1-1.5 hours to reach. The monastery is dedicated to Timios Stavros (Holy Cross) and until recently was in ruins, however recent restoration works have revealed a gem of Cretan religious tradition.

At the north end of Vossako beach, there is a second small pebbly beach, called Vrahi beach. This beach is perfect for snorkeling, on windless days only.
