Komos Beach Crete
There are countless beaches in Crete, ranging from the most ordinary to the most nudist.
One of these is located 66 kilometers from Heraklion, in the immediate vicinity of the village of Kalamaki.
Komos is a nudist beach. It can be reached via the road leading to Matala beach, where you can see a sign directing to Komos.
It was once the local ancient port of Festos. You can still find its remains on the beach. In the 60s of the 20th century, this beach was also known as a hippie haven.
Matala and Komos are separated by a small promontory, so no one will bother anyone. You don't have to worry about that.
In the South, the beach is equipped with sunbeds, umbrellas, restaurants, showers, and toilets. There may be sand or rocks in the sea. Be careful, from May to September, the Caretta Caretta sea turtle lays eggs in the sand.
There are some trees in the Northern part of the beach. Komos is also a protected ecological area. You can't build anything on it.
If you want to stay nearby, the village of Kalamaki will suit you for the best convenience. It can be easily reached by a rented car. You can also drive to Pitsidia or Matala.
