The Tripiti beach is about 70 kilometers in the south of Heraclion.
The area took its name from the Panagia Tripiti church that is built in a cave on the fountains of the walls of the Tripiti gorge.
The beach is not organized but there are many tamarixes in order to protect you from the sun.
Two taverns and many trailers are almost permanently in Tripiti.
Various small bays are on the road from Tripiti to Lentas.
Tripiti can be accessed from the dirt roads of Lentas or Vasilki. The road from Vasiliki passes through the Agios Savvas gorge and Tripiti. Near the beach, the gorge becomes so narrow that hides the sky. Only a car can pass from that spot but the landscape is so impressive that it is worth visiting.
