•  Ask to find out about the beach with clay. A part of the ground on this beach contains clay and if you wet a piece, it will turn into cream. With it you can do peeling on your body and face. If you leave it on you for some time and then go into the sea, the sensation you will feel will be wonderful.

    From Heraklion towards Agios Nikolaos, then towards Ierapetra is about 2 hours. From there towards Ziros - Xerokampos 1 hour.


    A village one passes, before they reach Xerokampos, Hametoulo (at the moment with just 4 inhabitants...), is the place of birth of the Theodorakis family. Here one also finds the entrance of the Hametoulo ravine, which ends in Xerokampos. From Ziros a very kurvy road leads down after Xerokampos.

    An other way to come in Xerokampos, is from Heraklion to Sitia (2 hours Driving), Sitia to Zakros (1 hour Driving) and Zakros to Xerokampos (10 mins Driving).
