Triopetra is located about 52km south of Rethymno
Triopetra consists of two beaches, which are separated by a small peninsula.
At the edge of the peninsula, in the sea, three majestic rocks rise. Triopetra is named after these rocks since it means “Three Rocks”. The first beach, known as Small Triopetra (or Koumado), is located in a closed sandy and rocky bay, south of the three rocks. In its southern end flows the river Akoumianos.
The beach has beautiful coarse sand and nice water colours. Its west-orientation makes it vulnerable to the western winds and high waves, but also famous for its fantastic sunset.
The east part of the beach is mildly organized with taverns, rooms and umbrellas, but never seems crowded.
There is a small river, with freshwater all year round. Free camping is not allowed on the beach, but there is a stunning big cave with shape Δ near the three rocks, where you can find shade.
