Asprougas beach

Beach description

On the middle section of Koufonisi’s southern coastline, you’ll find the isolated and untouched Asprougas beach. The name ‘Asprougas’ translates to ‘white’ in the Cretan dialect, aptly describing the soft, white clay rocks found in the area. This same clay, abundant throughout the region, was responsible for the island’s ancient name, Lefki, meaning ‘white’. Known for its healing properties, the clay is perfect for mud spa treatments.

Asprougas could be likened to an open-air geological museum, with a wealth of fossils, particularly on one slope where an extinct snail species is abundant. The area’s morphology is as fascinating as its fossil collection, with white and striped rocks littering the landscape. The water here is shallow, and the sand bears a light reddish hue.

Many rocks in the area bear marks from the Roman era, left by visitors who wished to imprint their presence on this enchanting corner of the world. Because of these inscriptions, the beach has also become known as ‘Stories’.
