"Agiofarango"- A Paradise for your Eyes Only!


 Agiofarango

Agiofarago is a unique paradise for your eyes only! If someone loves hiking, nature and the natural beauty that God has generously given to this place, it's worth to visit this canyon that leads to such a beautiful beach with clear blue waters it has. Agiofarago is the southernmost climbing in Crete and is along one kilometers south of Matala.
 The gorge ends up on a beach, surrounded by tall, majestic cliffs. This is a uniquely beautiful, secluded beach with small pebbles and deep, clear waters. The access is done either through the gorge or by boat from the village of Kaloi Limenes, Matala and Agia Galini.
Preferred and camping, especially those who own a boat, as otherwise the transfer of campers equipment is possible only through the gorge. Provide even the possibility of climbing, if this is your hobby and of course to be commissioned with the right equipment before 'climb' to the sharp and steep cliffs, while in charge of your, is you alone.



Around 250 meters before the beach, it is the church of Agios Antonios, builded in the 14th century. Inside the chapel of Agios Antonios is very cool and amazing is the way it is illuminated by the sweet light that enters through the small windows in the dome. Next there is a well, which is closed and doesn't know whether there is water inside, and if it is potable. Also, high on the rocks, left the church, a huge cave formed, the Goumenospilios, which is illuminated internally by a hole in the roof and was a meeting place of ascetics of the region, once every year.
If you visit the beach of Agiofarago, don't forget to climb to the top of the cliffs to the east to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea where it be photographed, and to keep those moments in your personal album. Behind the beach is the Vourvoulitis a doline with water, communicating underwater through underground passages to the Libyan Sea, giving the impression that water lake surrounded by tall, majestic cliffs. Its depth reaches a point 10 meters. To swim in the front of water, you need to follow a dangerous and difficult path. The experience, will compensate you!
