What to Know Before Visiting Xerokampos

Apartments and hotels in Xerokampos from Crete Island

Xerokampos is a remote village located on the eastern coast of Crete, which is quite far from other settlements. It is part of the Sitia municipality, and the nearest towns are Sitia, which is about 50 km to the north, and the villages of Ziros and Zakros. This tranquil location is perfect for those seeking peace and serenity, with only a few houses, guesthouses, and taverns scattered among beautiful beaches and crystal clear seas. The resort offers striking views surrounded by lush olive groves, making it an increasingly popular destination for tourists.

Xerokampos is an old settlement that has been inhabited since the Minoan times. It is first recorded in the 1583 Venetian census, and there are important ancient sites from Hellenic times on the hills of Antisternia and Farmakokefalo. The ancients were certainly aware of the beauty of this place and its important position. The settlement would appear to have been at the spot called Katsounaki, and on Trahilas hill, a peak sanctuary already looted was discovered. Visitors can traverse along the seashore on winding coastal roads that have only been recently paved, and they are presented with a series of small beaches that are divided by rugged promontories and sea grottoes. While some areas do offer tourist services such as amenities and activities, most of the coastline remains wild, providing guests with the feeling of ultimate isolation in a paradise.
