Gorgeous paradise beaches with clear waters stretching along Lassithi region.
The two most pleasant surprises of the prefecture of Lassithi are Tholos and Zakros beaches located 29 km east of Agios Nikolaos. On the coastal road of Agios Nikolaos-Sitia turn left on the signs as you reach Kavousi. At the end of a snaking trail going through an olive grove there is this tropical beach. Tholos is the beach of Kavousios and is usually quiet in the afternoon. The green waters and the olive grove that reaches the sandy beach make it a destination for anyone exploring eastern Crete.
