Preveli beach is located 32 km south of the city of Rethymnon in the estuary of a river which is homonymous with the beach.

It is an extremely beautiful sandy beach which is surrounded by palm trees and plenty of naturalistic treasures for tourists to discover such as the incredible waterfalls that exist in the area.

Another amazing thing about that beach is that you have also the choice of swimming in the fresh waters of the nearby river if that suits you best.

How to get there

There are two ways to get to the beautiful beach of Preveli from which you can choose from. You can either go with a boat which you can take from Agia Galini (or some other nearby villages) or you can take the stairs that are located in the west side of the gorge near a monastery.


Preveli beach does not have any special facilities except for a taverna, which nonetheless can cover all your basic needs like food, coffee, soft drinks and toilet.
