Nude beaches differ from other general entertainment and personal recreation spots in that they allow anyone the freedom to go naked whenever they deem it fit. There are rules of course, but these are essentially meant to ensure the comfort and optimal enjoyment of the users. Over the years, nude beaches have become acceptable and legal in the face of the public and the authorities and are even protected by the powers that be. In addition to that, people have slowly become open to the idea of swimming, walking and frolicking around in the nude, something you might be quite familiar with. If you enjoy the natural freedom of going all out naked, then nude beaches are the perfect place to start.
A trip along the wild west coast of Sfakia which is only accessible by boat or hiking through the E4 path. After we leave Chora Sfakion you can enjoy our boat trip in the nude! Our first skinny dipping stop is Kalogeros (Monk) beach where we are all alone. Beautiful rock formations make snorkeling a must, so make sure to bring your masks and tubes! On our way to our next stop we approach the coast and you can have a view of the famous Samaria gorge. Next stop is St Paul beach with its 10th century Byzantine church and the beautiful pine forest. A tavern there can offer you some shade and a nice cold drink. After the second skinny dipping dive in the fresh water of St Paul we continue to the picturesque village of Loutro where we can enjoy our lunch. Last stop of our naturist boat trip is Sweet Water beach where we enjoy our last skinny dip! Make sure to shower with the cold clean water coming straight from the White Mountains. Keep in mind that the beaches we reach are wild and have no quay, so it is essential that you can swim a short distance to the shore. We will bring your camera, towels and whatever else needed in a waterproof bag. All you have to worry about is enjoying the sunshine and the sea bottom views!
A morning ride through a beautiful forest and a windy road gets us to Imbros gorge entrance. A cool air breeze at 780 m makes the walk easier and during the different seasons one can notice different flowers blooming. Dragon Lilly and delphinium in spring, wild mint and sea squill in autumn are some of these! An easy, but still requiring good shoes, 2,5 hours walk downhill. Have an apple with you for the donkey we might meet on our way down and enjoy nature’s scents and views!
Pachnes is the highest mountain summit of Crete (2456m) according to the latest satellite measurements and it is certainly a place you must visit if you are interested in hiking. The way to Pachnes through Anopolis and the pine tree forest ends after a 2-hour hiking trip. The sea of mountains as described by our guests, the lunar landscape… and the views of Cretan and Libyan sea create a breathtaking view!
We start with an uphill ride with spectacular views of the Libyan sea on a curvy road to reach Anopolis village. The adventure starts when off road driving through a pine forest leads us to the beginning of Ilingas gorge. A short walk downhill and we reach a 14th century church and the only water spring in the area. Then the naturist part begins! 1,5 to 2 hours walk just like Adam and Eve and then off to Anopolis for a tasty lunch with traditional products and lots of tsikoudia! Join and you won’ t regret it!
Mini – Description of the tour:
The wildest, most impressive gorge of the municipality. A Bailey noisy bridge brings us to the village of Aradena, which was abandoned after a vendetta. We walk down the walls of the gorge and the adventure starts. Eight more challenging vertical passages. Red colored walls, wild goats and herbs scents. The spectacular scenery is completed as soon as Gryffon Vultures show up in the sky… Time for a drink or a Sfakian pie with the view of the clear blue sea and marble rock caves!
