Adelianos Kampos, 6 km east of Rethymnon, is a seaside suburb which has been transformed from a small village to a part of the city. Easily accessible by bus from the center, it offers a long stretch of sandy beach along the Rethymno Gulf, extending to Skaleta. The beach is well-equipped with umbrellas, lifeguards, changing rooms, showers, bars, and more, making it a great spot for water and beach sports. The sea is shallow, but often wavy, and is home to sea turtles who lay eggs here – you may spot some of their nests, protected by ropes and signs. In Adelianos Kambos, you can find a range of accommodation, as well as plenty of dining, shopping, and entertainment options.
