Glika Nera Beach, Sfakia

The intimate atmosphere of Glika Nera Beach offers a great swimming and diving experience away from the big crowds. Located near a water well, the reclusive beach features some seashore trees growing straight from the pebbly ground--they're an ideal shade for a cool drink on a hot day. Keep in mind that a part of the beach is designated for nudists, so time your visit to avoid them if it isn't your thing.

  • By far the best beach near Chora Sfakion. Long beach with pebbles and crystal clear amazing waters. There are also spots where you can find sweet water to wash yourself after your diving in the water....  more »
  • The beach is beautifully washed by the Libyan Sea southwest of Crete. Easily accessible from the port of Sfakia by taxi-boat that also reaches Lutro. On the board, on a stilt there is a typical and pretty tavern serving tasty Greek dishes. The beach is very wide: the first part is reserved for textiles, the second part for nudists. You rent sunbeds and umbrellas and you can shower with fresh water that emerges directly from the ground. Often you can enjoy the company of some goat sits down from the ridges in search of food, prepare some biscuits or fruit.
