1. Sarakinikos, Gavdos December 19, 2010 11:30

The beach Sarakiniko of Gavdos is located just 1.5km north of the port of Gavdos, Karave. You can get there either by bus from Karave, or by walking 30 minutes from there. It is named after the Saracen pirates who once used the island as a base of attacks.

It is a dreamy blond beach with crystal clear shallow waters, hidden in a wild landscape of dunes and junipers. The beach provides some very basic amenities and there are some rooms, rental cars, taverns, a mini market and the only camping in Gavdos.
