Tripiti Beach is a beautiful sandy beach located on the south of Crete, in Greece.
The road to the beach is gravel. The road is a delight to drive, with every kind of twist and turn. Starting from Vasiliki it’s a 7.3 km long dirt track with 9 hairpin turns, very steep and narrow. After rain, even a single rainfall, conditions of the road can be challenging. Watch out for sudden loose-gravel breaks.
The road is pretty busy at summer months. It ends on a parking plot. 4x4 or SUV vehicle recommended. It’s pretty steep (5% average gradient). The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views. Near the beach, the gorge becomes so narrow that hides the sky in a zone called Steno Faragi. Through this narrow slit passes the road that barely fits a car.
