Psili Ammos beach - Lasithi

0 (0 Reviews)

Beach description

The picturesque Psili Ammos beach, situated near the renowned Vai palm beach, is about 95km east of Agios Nikolaos and 25km east of Sitia. A brief stroll from Vai, across the eastern hill, leads you to this hidden gem. The beach, with its fine sand and crystal clear waters, is often deserted, making it a perfect spot for solitude and naturism.

Psili Ammos, translating to ‘fine sand’ in Greek, is an apt description of the sandy stretch that defines the area. The beach takes shape at the end of this narrow sand strip, and its turquoise-green waters make it one of the most beautiful secluded spots on Crete. Lack of large trees necessitates carrying an umbrella for shade. Hunger pangs can be satiated at the nearby Vai canteen. The area is a protected zone owing to the rare Vai palm forest, hence tourist facilities like taverns, hotels and rooms are scarce.

A walkway from Psili Ammos heads south, leading to Maridati beach after a 2.5-hour walk. This trail is dotted with numerous small coves and their accompanying secluded beaches. The first one encountered is recognized for its stunning rock formations.
