About Loutres beaches

Mochlos is a traditional village, located 48km east of Agios Nikolaos and 35km west of Sitia. Approximately 300m to the east, next to settlement Agios Andreas, you’ll find several small bays with round pebbles, which are secluded. Kolimbakia or Loutres coves, as they are called by locals, are ideal for snorkelling and fishing, as the rocky bottom is home to plenty of fish. After the coves, you will meet the beach in front of a local hotel, Stomio beach, which is well organized with umbrellas, showers, beach-volley courts, canoes, sailing, windsurfing and diving facilities. The last beach east of Mochlos is formed at the exit of a small stream with big pebbles, called Mavro Selli.
