Kyani Akti – Blue Beach

Kyani Akti (Blue Beach), Kalami

Blue Beach is about 4 km from Aptera, just beyond Kalami, on the road to Kalives. This long sandy beach has beach umbrellas and loungers for hire at both ends of the beach. A river runs down to the sea here, and there is a good, family run taverna on the beach front specialising in seafood & Cretan dishes as well as cold drinks & doors.
