Agio Farango Beach
The beach of Agiofarago is located about 80km south of Heraklion city, at the exit of the Gorge Agiofarago. To get there you must either cross the gorge, by easy hiking of about 25-50’, or catch a boat from Matala, Agia Galini, Kokkinos Pirgos or Kali Limenes. We definitely recommend the first…
Walk through the canyon that ends in a beautiful beach. Don't forget to take snacks and water with you.
You have to walk down the gorge 20 min and you will be amazed by the nice beach at the end
