Agios Charalambos beaches

Beach description

The Agios Charalambos cove lies adjacent to a local hotel that caters exclusively to nudists. Situated 1.5km east of Chora Sfakion and 75km south of Chania, it can be found in an area dotted with several nearby pebble beaches. The shoreline comprises 3-4 sequentially isolated coves, with Sfakiano Ammoudi being the first one and Agios Charalambos the following one. A small path through the rocks, before reaching Agios Charalambos, leads to the cave-like church of Saint Charalambos, revered by the Sfakians. Known for protecting people from plagues, Saint Charalambos had chapels built in his name at village entrances. However, in Sfakia, where sea was the primary means of communication, the temple was built along the coast.

The coves, along with the nearby Filaki beach, are primarily occupied by nudists, making them Crete’s only “official” nudist-friendly beaches due to the presence of the nudist hotel. The beaches are pebbly and occasionally exposed to rare southern winds. Their isolated nature means there are no accommodation services, water sports, sunbeds, or lifeguards available. Only the Filaki beach houses a single canteen that can be accessed by car.

To reach the beaches, one can drive from Chora Sfakion or walk, heading east and taking a right turn about 150m after the gas station encountered when leaving Sfakia, towards the Vritomartis hotel. A junction lies just below the hotel. The left (eastern) road leads to Filaki beach, while the right (western) road takes you to the Ammoudi and Agios Charalambos coves.
