After numerous autumn holidays in the Canary Islands we decided on a complete change for 2015 and booked a two-week break at Vritomartis, our first visit to the beautiful island of Crete.
After a scenic trip over the cloud shrouded mountains from Chania we glimpsed our destination far below – Vritomartis, an oasis in the beige barren landscape. The friendly welcome and thirst quenching orange juice gave us an early taster of the kindness of the Sfakian people that we would experience over the next two weeks.
Our bungalow was beautifully located with stunning views from the balcony of the sparkling Libyan Sea and the island of Gavdos is the distance.
Vritomartis officially closed its gates for 2015 on the 27th of October, keeping inside all the nice memories of the season that passed and hoping to see everyone back next year. We would like to thank you all for visiting Vritomartis because it is you, your kindness and your friendship that gives us the strength and the courage to keep going year after year and help us become better and better!
The closing of Vritomartis also signaled the end of our “Photo of the Day” Contest! Else Ishaug with the photo titled ‘Goats Staring‘ was voted by Vritomartis Team as the winner of our photo contest and will get our 300€ Prize!
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.

You may be like so many others and have considered going to a naturist beach or maybe you went to one by yourself or friends to see what it was all about. Have you ever thought about taking the family on a naturist holiday? How would your family benefit from the experience? In addition to the experience being liberating and fun, there are also a lot more technical benefits that everyone will appreciate. Living life in the nude is ingrained in the history of our ancestors, but recent times have changed all of that. I’m not just talking about day-to-day life, but how society has encouraged us to believe that living, even if occasionally, as a naturist is a thing frowned upon. Thankfully, times seem to be slowly changing as more and more people realize the multitude of benefits that naturist family experience has, even if only on vacations or for short periods of time. The family holiday is a time to relax and enjoy spending quality time with those around you outside of your daily habits and that is exactly what you would be doing here, at Vritomartis.
Crete, Greece – Vritomartis Naturist Resort opened its doors for many excited naturists on April 24, 2015 and will continue to provide quality services to many more until closing on October 26, 2015. With over 161 beds in 85 beautifully crafted rooms, Vritomartis strives to have accommodations to satisfy all individuals.
This last year, recent renovations took place in public areas such as the pool bar, restaurant and the reception area. Smaller renovations also took place in other areas to offer modern, beautiful, relaxing and eye-appealing accommodations.
Vritomartis Newly Renovated Reception
As Vritomartis General Manager Nikos Dourountakis quotes: “We tried to modernize our facilities without losing our traditional character“.
When we arrived at Vritomartis, after a beautiful and exciting trip over The White Mountains from Chania, we were pleasantly surprised. Mountain goats were climbing along the road and we drove off the road and rolled the windows down to soak in the warm air, smell the mountains and bimling sound from the goats bells was all around. On the road down to Chora Sfakia, a big sign popped up and showed us the way to Vritomartis. The road down to the hotel welcomed us with beautiful flowering shrubs.
