Kato Zakros beach by Zakros

The settlement of Kato Zakros, only 8 km away from Pano (upper) Zakros, 25 from Palekastro and 44 from Sitia is a most impressive small fishing village, hidden away in the southeast corner of Crete, behind a beautiful tamarind-fringed beach.

There are several excellent fish tavernas on the beach, ideal for relaxed, long lunches or for romantic evening meals. Anyone staying in Kato Zakros should walk down the 'Valley of the Dead', approximately a 2-hour walk, which leads down from Pano Zakros to the sea at Kato Zakros.
