Kalimera From Kato Zakros East Crete

Kalimera to all our valued guests from east part of Crete, Kato Zakros,

explore this lovely, unique place of our lovely Crete

The setting of Kato Zakros is simply amazing. You are by the sea with a large pebble beach and often-dazzling waters.

It's quiet, feels as "real" as a beachside place can, there is a little tourism as such and what there is mostly consists of daytime visitors to the Palace of Zakros archaeological site.
