Maridatis beachMaridati is beautiful unknown pebbly beach at a remote green valley in the area of Palekastro (6km far from Palekastro and 24 from Zakros Village). Here you can enjoy your swimming secluded, far from crowded places.

There is a small torrent in the area (dry in summer) and there are also several tamarisk trees along the beach, so umbrellas are actually needless. There is a small cafe and music bar near the beach. The beach is shaped within two big rocks and is quite short in length. There is a small torrent in the area (dry in summer) and there are also several tamarisk trees 50m from the beach. Maridatis used to attract Venetian ships in the past due to the torrent and the springs of the area.
