Seitan Limania ( “Ports of Satan”) is a remote sandy beach located on the northwest coast of the Greek island of Crete. It’s one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world.
The road to this beach, also known as Stefanou Beach, is asphalted, surrounded by rock formations. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides. One mistake and it's a free fall to your death.
Placed between rocky cliffs, the road to this beach has many hair-raising hairpin bends. In many places the road is bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. The road to the beach is recently constructed. During the drive to this hidden jewel of wild beauty, you will have the privilege of admiring the grandeur of Crete's nature. The asphalt road descends abruptly, ending at a parking area.
