Keratokampos beach which stretches for several kilometres along the coast in the southeastern part of the prefecture, is located right where the village sharing the same name is -with big tourist development over the last few years- about 60km from the centre of Heraklion city.
There are two sections. The eastern one, stretching up to the Keratokampitis river, is the more quiet of the two. It is an ideal choice for all those who wish to enjoy swimming and games on the sand (there are several sandy parts) without many people around. The western part, with coarse pebbles, is right next to the village, with more facilities.
