Xerokambos is a peaceful but extraordinary little town surrounded by mountains filled with caves and interesting natural rocky sculptures, located at south-eastern Crete, 8 kilometers far away from Kato Zakros and 123 kilometers from the capital city of Lassithi Prefecture, Agios Nikolaos.



Xerokambos is also accesible by passing from the very picturesque village of Ziros and driving downhill through a winding surfaced mountainous road, enjoying at the same time the breathtaking view...

Xerokambos has one of the most beautiful sandy beaches the visitor has ever seen and could easily be characterized as tropical due to the innumerous blue-green shades of its crystal-clear waters. During September a rare kind of plant the white lilies of the sea, start blooming.

It is not a too developed touristy area and it is mostly suitable for very peaceful holidays (very limited perception for mobile phones...). There are only a few rooms/apartments available to rent, no nightlife and some traditional tavernas.

Xerokambos is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the marvelous beach and the terrific mountainous landscape.
