A trip to kaloi limenes (south of Crete)

Recently i visited south of Crete to take a taste of the beautiful beaches. The waters on the area were the clearest i have seen in Crete. The trip going from Heraklion to kaloi limenes takes around 1 hour and half. It i will be better to start early and take as much water you can. The sun is really strong on the summer and then temperature is probably higher than anything you have felt.

Here is the route we used. Unfortunately the route is not easy especially in the last part.

Here are some photos from the trip:
