Glika Nera Beach, Sfakia

The intimate atmosphere of Glika Nera Beach offers a great swimming and diving experience away from the big crowds. Located near a water well, the reclusive beach features some seashore trees growing straight from the pebbly ground--they're an ideal shade for a cool drink on a hot day. Keep in mind that a part of the beach is designated for nudists, so time your visit to avoid them if it isn't your thing.
