Fodele Beach

Viewpoint Always Open (possibly closed due Covid-19 restrictions) Check location

Fodele beach is located 26km northwest of Heraklion and just 3km north of the village Fodele, which is believed to be the birthplace of the painter Domenikos Theotokopoulos, widely known as El Greco. The National Road connecting Heraklion and Chania passes beside the beach. It’s a nice sandy beach, exposed to north winds and protected on the east by Cape Stavros and on the west by the hill of Kastellos, on top of which there are ruins of the old fort Kastelos. The beach of Fodele is formed at the exit of the river Pantomantris or Fodelianos.
