Agios Nikitas Beach in Heraklion
Agios Nikitas beach is located 65km south of Heraklion, on the east side of the wild Asterousia Mountains. The best way to get there is to drive in the rugged dirt road that starts from the village Ahendrias and ends at the Monastery of St. Nikitas after 15km. The fascinating route runs along steep cliffs and wild sharp rocks, a characteristic landscape of the Asterousia Mountains. Absolutely fascinating beach and clean waters.
