Perivolakia and Timios Stavros beaches

0 (0 Reviews)

Beach description

The trio of neighbouring coves – Small Perivolaki, Large Perivolaki, and Timios Stavros – are nestled 2.5km west of Chora Sfakion and 74km south of Chania city. Situated in a rugged mountainous region, they lie midway between Glyka Nera beach and Loutro on the E4 European walking trail.

Small Perivolaki is the first beach to the west, followed by Large Perivolaki, with Timios Stavros being the furthest east. These beaches are characterized by pebbles and large rock formations. Their secluded nature makes them a favoured spot for naturists and snorkelling enthusiasts. However, there are no amenities nearby, with Loutro being the closest at 1km to the west. There is also a lack of natural shade, making it essential to bring your own umbrellas. Access to these coves is either by a 1km walk from Loutro to Glyka Nera or by boat.

A few meters west of Timios Stavros cove, you’ll find the small chapel of Timios Stavros, or Holy Cross. The chapel stands on the site of a former Venetian fortress, the ruins of which can still be seen scattered around the church.
