Visiting Maliou Riaki beach is a must thing to do during your holidays in Crete

Crete | Maliou Riaki Beach

Tou Maliou to Riaki beach will enchant you with its impressive rock formations


Tou Maliou to Riaki beach (i.e. Malios’ stream or Spilies) is located 15km east of Rethymnon city, in a fairly secluded area, just a few kilometers east of Skaleta and west of Geropotamos. It is quite unknown to most locals, though it is very close to the main road that connects Heraklion to Rethymno. This pebbly beach is formed in a small bay protected by steep cliffs and has crystal clear deep waters. On the beach there are umbrellas, sun beds and a small canteen and that’s all! The only problem here might be waves, due to common north winds. Characteristic of the cove, are the beautiful cave rocks that protect the small beach on the west. Beyond the west and the east end of the beach, there are several caves and rocks with amazing formations. A large part of the east caves collapsed in winter 2011-12, a very important development because the endangered Mediterranean seal Monachus monachus finds shelter in these cavities.
