A long, open and very quiet beach for those wishing to relax

Triopetra is a long beach with small pebbles, where basic amenities are available for those who wish to relax and enjoy the sea and the sun.

Named after the three (trio) impressive rocks (petra) that cut into the sea, Triopetra can be accessed after Akoumia (south Rethymno, road to Agia Galini). The road to Akoumia is rather easy, while the road to the beach has a few more turns but still easy to access. Make sure you follow the sings, and drive at low velocity. The view from above, when descending towards the beach is really worthwhile. Sun shades and sun chairs are available on the sandy beach where sea is steeply deep after a few meters. In general the waters here remain cool throughout the year. On the beach you can find a couple of restaurants, where you can have your lunch or enjoy your coffee.
