Weekend Getaways from Anogia

Then afternoon was our journey to Red beach. On the way to Red beach , we saw a local corn stall and my husband started pretending he is a chef and asked to take pictures. Locals were very friendly. We came to location but we were not able to see any beach near us. So we asked a local and he told it is a hike. To get to Red beach is a small hike. Climbing a huge rock and climbing down gets us to beach. We started climbing the rock and mid way , we were fascinated to see. It was a very huge red rock infront of us with a small white patch in the middle and beach was almost invisible. We saw many small moving objects down and confirmed it as beach. As we headed down, we were amazed. This is a red sand beach. There were shacks for rent. We took two and rested. We were totally in very clear water swimming and playing around. Spent almost 2 hours there. Very beautiful beach. It does not seem like a beach until you go near because of huge red rock. After a very satisfying day, we headed to hotel.
Anogia village is located in the prefecture of Rethymno, on the northern slopes of Mt. Psiloritis. The quickest way to get there is through Heraklion – Tylissos, following the old national road to Rethimno. If you come in Anogia and want to see the small museum, ask the people at the square of the Perahori, for Sakoulas: his real name is Giorgos Skoulas.
