Domata beach

About Domata beach

The beautiful beach Domata is located 7km east of Sougia and 58km south of Chania city, at position Tseses. The beach is the ending point of the wild and rugged gorge of Klados. Thanks to the action of water, a unique natural monument has been created. The name Domata (meaning “roofs”) comes from the staggered arrangement of conglomerate rocks that remind of huge walls. The vast quantities of pebbles and dirt that are brought here by the gorge, and the perpetual undulation of the sea and the air have contributed to their creation.

The beach is beautiful with fine pebbles and crystal clear blue waters. If you dig in the sand, you can find fresh water from underground springs. As expected, the region has no roads and any infrastructure is absent. The numerous pine trees near the beach offer natural shade and a good camping opportunity. The southernmost part of the beach, separated by rocks from the main beach of Domata, is called Kolotrividis after the homonymous cape.
Access to Domata is possible through the E4 European trail that heads east and leads to the Agia Roumeli (3 -4 hours on foot). However, beware that the slopes at some points are quite steep and dangerous, as the trail climbs at an altitude of 700m.
