Welcome to Xerokambos
Xerokambos (kse-ro-kam-bos) is a quiet resort and farming settlement on the far southeastern flank of Crete. Its isolation means that tourism is pretty much low-key, and it’s at its busiest in July and August. The attractions for visitors are two of eastern Crete’s most pristine and beautiful beaches, which are backdropped by mountains and have unbelievably clear water. There are a few scattered tavernas and some studio accommodation. The town, which fluorished here in the Hellenistic period, had commercial relations with Rhodes and Karpathos.
There are no buses to Xerokambos. From Zakros there’s a signposted turn-off to the resort via 8km of winding surfaced road. The continuation to Ziros is through some very wild country and some very wild bends.
