Kamboula beach

Beach description

Listis, situated 69km southeast of Iraklion, is nestled between Kastri, 2km to its west, and Tsoutsouras. The beach stretch west of Listis, up to the Anapodaris river, is known as Kambala. This river is a significant wetland in Crete. Kamboula beach, with its charming pebbles and clear, blue waters, is quite a sight to behold. Though the area is not fully developed, a few accommodations have sprouted up in recent times. It’s an excellent choice for those seeking seclusion or wishing to sunbathe in the nude.

Contrary to the dry and warm surroundings, the Anapodaris river maintains water nearly all year round. Parts of the beach are dotted with tamarisk trees, providing much-needed shade. The beach is easily accessible, with the road connecting Kastri and Tsoutsouras running alongside it.
