Kaloi Limenes is small village with a beautiful beach in the southern part of Heraklion, 75 km from the capital of the prefecture and 22km from the mountainous village Moires. In essence, there are three beaches one after the other, 2km long.

As you go from west to east, you will first come across Psili Ammos beach (right at the village), with many facilities and golden sand, which is the busiest of the three. Further down you will find Makria Ammos beach (also known as Armyrikia, Dendra or Sissamolakos) with the characteristic rocks Aspros and Mavros Volakas, pebbles and deep waters. The east part is mostly frequented by nudists. Karavovrysi beach with coarse sand is located at the easternmost part of Kaloi Limenes. There are no beach facilities, so make sure you have everything you might need with you.

You can get to Kaloi Limenes either by car (crossing Mount Asterousia, through Pompia and Pigaidakia villages or via the passable dirt road starting at the Monastery of Odigitria) or by boat from Lentas.

The only thing that you might find spoils the beauty of the scenery are the oil tanks that can be seen on an islet, opposite the settlement, are used for refueling of the boats sailing the East Mediterranean.
