Skaloti is a small seaside village located on the south coast of the Greek island of Crete, in the plain of Frangkastello, at the foot of the White Mountains.
The road to the town is gravel, pretty steep with 14 hairpin turns. The whole track is covered with loose gravel. Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. Driving at night, or in poor visibility, is not recommended for drivers unfamiliar with the road.
The road is narrow. It’s not possible to overtake a car, even with a bike. The road is a delight to drive, with every kind of twist and turn. It climbs up to 943m above the sea level. At this elevation a viewpoint offers great views of the sea. The road runs through the canyon Skaloti near the end. Along the way it’s possible to visit the Άγιος Μανώλης church.
