For something completely different try Glyka Nera Beach. It is reached either by a 15-minute boat ride from Hora Sfakion or a stunning 30-minute walk down a coastal trail from the clifftops.
The beach, also known as Sweetwater Beach, is famous for the cold freshwater that seeps from between the pebbles and flows into the sea. As a result, the water here will be cooler than many of the other beaches you may have visited. The setting for the beach is stunning, with massive towering cliffs rising straight up from the back of the beach, and azure blue waters that seem to stretch to the horizon.
Despite the isolated nature of the beach, one small over-water taverna operates, providing food and cold drinks. The trailhead for the coastal hike down starts at the final bend in the road prior to the parking lot at Iligas Beach–keep an eye out for cars parked on the shoulders to locate the right spot.
