About Preveli Palm Beach

It is certainly the most famous beach in southern Crete.

During the 60s and 70s, it was a favorite destination for hippies. On the banks of the Grand River there is a large colony of Theophrastus palm trees, which give the region a sense of an African landscape.

You can walk along the river, under the shade of palm trees and other trees, and start ascending in the beautiful canyon. You can swim in the cold ponds formed in the gorge. A big fire in 2010 burnt almost everything of this paradise, but paradoxically the palmgrove recovered most of its damage.

At the exit of the river, a sandy beach with pebbles and sand is formed. In the eastern part of the beach, there is a beautiful rock standing out of the water, famous for it’s shape and worth photographing

Important!

Please take notice that there is always a slight chance of cancellation of one of the boat tours due the weather conditions
