Peristeri island is located on the northern coast of Rethymno, very close to Bali at a distance of 46 km from Heraklion and 35 from Rethymno. It is a small peninsula that narrows and discontinued forming a small deserted island.

The island is of no particular interest as it has no easy access to or from the sea because of the steep rocks. However, especially beautiful and ideal are the beaches formed on the small peninsula, with white sand and turquoise waters. Access is almost easy since the dirt road leading to the beaches starts next to the highway.
