Agia Roumeli is a unique place. It has genuine Cretan heritage and a strong sense of character. It is a peaceful community, nestled between breathtakingly high and wild mountains and a long beach of fine pebble by the deep blue, crystal clear Libyan sea. The village is remote and near enough isolated; you can only reach it on foot or by boat, as there is no road.
Visitors have discovered that Agia Roumeli is a superb place to spend their holidays, and many tend to return again and again. The surroundings allow guests to completely relax and switch off the outside world. Anyone who can relate to nature will find plenty to do here.
Agia Roumeli is situated in one of the wildest regions of Crete with rare flora, fauna and geology. Being the exit of the Samaria Gorge National Park, it offers magnificent walking and hiking trails through unspoilt and protected nature. The strong sun in combination with the salty sea and almost deserted beaches give you a unique sense of nurturing solitude. This spectacular setting is also an absolute antidote to any walker’s fatigue!
