The beach of Agiofarago is located about 80km south of Heraklion city, at the exit of the gorge bearing the same name. To get there you must either cross the gorge, by easy hiking of about 30-50’, or catch a boat from Matala, Agia Galini, or Kali Limenes. We definitely recommend the first option, as the route within the vertical walls of the gorge is breathtaking. On the way you will see the large caves were some hermits still live and the chapel of St. Anthony, with a well outside. The beach at the exit of the gorge is stunning, with fine pebbles and clear blue waters, which are usually very calm. West of the beach a beautiful arch is formed, beneath which you can swim. Vertical cliffs surround the beach, on whose top you might see hermits praying. The beach is ideal for camping, but keep in mind that  you need to carry all your stuff in the gorge. If on the other hand you are not the camping type, you should explore the rent a villa options in the wider area and enjoy a truly unforgettable vacation.
