Agios Pavlos beach, Ravdoucha

0 (0 Reviews)

Beach description

Saint Paul, or Agios Pavlos, is a stunning, hidden gem of a beach nestled in a scenic cove on the Rodopos Peninsula, situated 40km northwest of Chania city. The simplest route to this spot is by taking a boat from either Ravdoucha or Kissamos. It’s also accessible by car, following a lengthy dirt road that begins at Rodopos village and ends at the ancient monastery of Saint Paul, which overlooks the beach. Along the way, you’ll encounter the picturesque monastery of Saint John Gionas, a significant historical site in western Crete.

The beach takes its name from the quaint, historic Saint Paul monastery, renowned for its striking frescoes and the abundance of inscriptions left by pirates, sponge fishermen, travellers, and Venetian rulers. This secluded beach boasts clear pebbles and refreshingly deep, cool waters. It’s the perfect spot for solitude, particularly on calm, windless days. However, the lengthy drive may not be worthwhile if the beach alone is your sole purpose for visiting.
