Komos beach is located in southern Crete and is a good 2km long one. I admit it is one of my favorite one day excursions as it is only about an hour or so from where I live. The waters are crystal clear and the numerous salt cedar trees along its golden coastline make a welcoming hideout from the harsh summer sunrays. Like (literally) any place in Greece, the beach of Komos is considered a place with great archaeological interest, as there have been found remnants of the Minoan era, like large storage pots dating back to 1800 b.c.
Two more facts about this beach:
*Its sandy shore is sheltering the endangered species of Kareta-Kareta turtles, quite a thrilling and touching fact to know and pay extra attention while staying there.
*The beach is also famous to be one of the largest beaches for nudists on the island.
