Ligres is located 51km south of Rethymno and 7km south of the village Kerames, at the foot of the imposing mount of Siderotas. It is actually the northbound part of the beachfront called Akoumiani Gialia. Ligres is a vast beach with sand and fantastic deep sea. The development of tourism has kept it away, making it one of the nicest beaches on the island. The beach is not organized, but there are taverns and a few rooms on the west part of the beach, which can be accessed by car through a bad asphalt road. At the west end of the beach there is a beautiful waterfall having water all year round, which falls next to the sea.
