Kakia Skala is located 46km southeast of Agios Nikolaos and 9km east of Ierapetra. It's a pretty beach, not developed at all, although it is adjacent to the main road connecting Ierapetra with Makrigialos. It is shaped at the exit of the lush Gorge of Milonas with the waterfalls, that worth a visit.

The beach has fine pebbles and calm clear waters, while around you can find a lot of shade under tamarisk trees. There are no umbrellas there, but hotels and restaurants are within walking distance.

Locals refer to the region as Kakkos because of the nearby Kakkos Bay hotel, located 200m on the west. Only few of them call it Kakia Skala. Thus, if you ever ask someone about the beach, refer to it as “the beach east of Kakkos Bay”.
