Backed by Juniper Trees and sand dunes, Kedrodasos Beach is covered in white sand that reaches out into deep blue waters. This secluded beach is only one kilometer from the famous Elafonissi beach with its lagoon, and it is about 76 kilometers southwest of Chania.
Kedrodasos beach draws visitors who appreciate the natural beauty of the Crete coast, and it is pretty much untouched with no amenities. You will need to bring your own drinks and food, and you won’t find an umbrella or a sun bed in sight.
The beach itself is somewhat protected from the winds, and there are flat rocks scattered around the beach. It is the juniper trees and sand dunes which give this beach its unique character The roots of these trees rise to the surface, popping out of the ground as if they are small sculptures. Make sure that you are careful as these trees are delicate and take a long time to grow.
People often choose to camp at this natural beach, as it is one of the last untouched places in Crete. You can truly be at one with nature, but it is a 10-minute hike down to the beach from the nearest parking spot. However, the hike provides you with plenty of points to stop and admire the view.
