Keratokambos in Crete
Hotels and apartments
This small, quaint fishing village is located on the
southerly coast of Crete, approx. 70 km south of Heraklion. Up until
a few years ago, the village remained untouched by modern life but
visitors slowly uncovered its secret charms and since then some recent
development has taken place.
The village itself is made up of two parts, Keratokambos
and Kastri, and boasts a long stretch of sand and pebble beach. The
road running through the village, runs parallel to the sea and hosts
small tavernas and cafenia perfect for watching life go by and in
which one can sit and unwind under the shade of the tamarisk trees.
On the right side of the beach is a little harbour where
fishing boats are moored and a small selection of tavernas can be
found. The village itself offers also a variety of shops.
Keratokambos is an ideal location for those who enjoy
going on walks or those with an interest in wild plant life, as well
as for those who simply want to relax n the laid back style of Cretan
