Greece - Crete

Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, and one of the largest beaches in the Mediterranean. It is surrounded by the Aegean Sea to the north and the Libyan Sea to the south. It is a mountanious island, with a high mountain range crossing from west to east (highest peak 2454 m) where rivers have carved deep gorges.
Approximately 160 km south of mainland Greece, it spans 260 km east to west, and only between 12 to 60 km north to south. That means Crete covers an area of 8,336 km2, with a coastline of 1,046 km where there are hundreds of beaches, from very popular beaches in tourist resorts to little coves only accessible by boat or after a long hike. Most of them consist of small pebbles, but there are also some sandy beaches.
The climate in Crete is primarily Mediterranean, which means mild winters and average summer temperatures around 30ºC, occasionally reaching up to the mid 40s. The south coast falls in the North African climatic zone, and thus enjoys significantly more sunny days and higher temperatures throughout the year.

Naturism is accepted in many beaches in Crete, although the only one official nude beach is associated to a naturist resort (Vritomartis). Most of them are located in the south, east or west coasts, since holiday resorts concentrate in the north and beaches are more accessible.
It is sad to find in the reports submitted to Captain Barefoot (probably the best reference for nudist spots in Greece) that as tourism grows in Crete, there seems to be less suitable places for naturists. Thus, the possibility to take your clothes off depends largely on the season and even on the time.

Below you can find a map with the beaches in Crete where nudism can be practiced. The name and locations have been checked in several sources, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy in all cases. Please check by yourself the current status of these beaches.

Non-official nude beach, but nudism is tolerated (maybe only in one section of the beach or depending on the date/time)

          I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
