  • Direct access to a sandy beach of over 12km
  • Four kilometres from Rethymno
  • Beach-based taverna

Now that is most definitely a barside view... Those golden sands above are the splendid scenes from the beach taverna at Camping Elizabeth in Crete, where you can have a restful sandy-toed time trying the homemade Greek delicacies for breakfast, lunch, dinner – and several snacks in between.

The beach here is directly accessible from the campsite, running for over 12 kilometres of fine golden sand edged by trees and bamboo plants, sheltered from the elements for beachy walks and sunbathes in any month of the year. It's all four kilometres away from the site's main town of Rethymno, the spectacularly scenic place where almost all the Old Town was built by the Republic of Venice.

Facilities at Camping Elizabeth include well-equipped blocks with free hot water and showers, taps gushing icy cold drinking water, and a launderette with washing machines. Wifi is available throughout most of the site.

Local attractions

It'd be sensible to spend the first few days on the beach first after arrival at Camping Elizabeth, possibly in a valiant attempt to get through the entire eats and drinks menu of the sandside taverna...

For exploring after that, a bus stop 300 metres away from the site connects it with the main towns and attractions of the island, or you could (should) walk or pedal the four kilometres from Elizabeth to the tavernas, shops and another spectacular beach at Rethymno.

Hikers can head to the Samarian Gorge about 100 kilometres away, a bit of a trek but well worth the trip as it's Europe's longest canyon at nearly 16 kilometres. It starts in the mountain forests of Xylóskala and runs all the way to Siderespórtes, with its cliff walls rising up nearly 1,000 feet.

Famed historical sites at Knossos, the ancient city of Phaistos and the cities of Heraklio and Chania are within about 90 minutes.
