Between the rocks

Kalypso Fjord

The Pirates’ Fjord is located 33km south of Rethymnon, in a tiny cove south of Mouri or Karavos Cape, near Plakias. It is a very narrow cove, formed between enormous vertical cliffs. The tiny beach shaped here has sand at its starting point and doesn’t exceed 2m in width. It deepens abruptly and changes to a deep rocky harbor. The fjord is named after the pirates who took refuge inside this sheltered bay during the Byzantine era. Today you will not find any pirates, but a swimming spot is formed. You can find sunbeds and umbrellas on the smooth rocks surrounding the fjord. You can also take some scuba diving lessons.

One of the best places for snorkeling in Crete!
