1. The nudists' beach December 18, 2010 12:41

Beach Filaki (meaning "Prison") is located 3km east of Chora Sfakia and 75km south of Chania. Located close to the only hotel exclusively for nudists in Crete, called "Vritomartis, Filaki and the adjacent beach of Vritomartis are mainly occupied by nudists.

These two beaches are actually the only "official" nudism-friendly beaches on Crete. There is a taverna which is almost totally nude, and many of the visitors to the beach walk all the way back to their cars at the parking lot before bothering to dress. You can't get much more naturist-friendly than this.

The beach of Filaki is pebbly and rocky in places and not open to the winds. It is completely isolated, despite the fact that access by car or walking from the nearby Sfakia is easy. On the beach there are no accommodation services, water sports or restaurants, but there are sunbeds.
