Ligres is located 51km south of Rethymno and 7km south of the village Kerames, at the foot of the imposing mount of Siderotas. It is actually the northbound part of the beachfront called Akoumiani Gialia.
At the west end of the beach there is a beautiful waterfall having water all year round, which falls directly in the sea! Ligres is a vast beach with coarse sand and fantastic deep sea.
The relatively tough access has fortunately kept the development of tourism away, making it one of the nicest, tranquil and most secluded beaches on the island. Beside the northern part of the beach, which is known as Katsouni, there is a nice beach mainly preferred by nudists, and is completely secluded.
However, there are many places where you can swim nude in this vast and emtpy beach. You should walk the beachfront to Triopetra, till Xiromilia area, with the amazing rock formations. In the middle of Ligres, a nice redish big rock stands near the sea.
Katsouni is a fantastic sandy beach with lovely waters and large rocks rising all around. The beach is so long and secluded that you might meet nobody around when you come here, especially in late or early summer.
