Kommos beach (or Komos) is located 66km southwest of Heraklion, just 2km north of Matala and close the seaside of Kalamaki. It is the southernmost and the most isolated part of the huge beachfront of Messara Bay. Kommos was once the port of Festos, so you can still see the ruins of the town, near the beach. You can access Kommos by driving in the road heading to Matala, till you see a sign to Kommos.
