A very special thing in Southcrete is:

Directly from the beach you are able to visit the inland. So it is very easy to combine holidays on the beach with cultural site seeing.
High above the Libyan Sea you find the monastery of Previli built on wild rocks. A few minutes walk away you will find one of the most amazing bays on Crete.

About 20 km away there is the Venetian Fort Frangokastello witch even braved the Turcs.

The infrastructure is very good. Damnoni offers many taverns, coffee shops, possibilities for shopping and watersports.
