The next stop to our trip to Rethymo beaches through with the help of CretanBeaches.com is the magnificent Triopetra beach, once again in the south coast where nature is still pure and modern civilization has not doomed the environment !

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”.

Triopetra is located about 52km south of Rethymno and 13km southeast of the village Akoumia, at the foot of the mountain Siderotas. It can be accessed by car, through paved roads that start either from Akoumia or Sachtouria. Triopetra lies in the central part of a long beachfront, called Akoumiani Gialia, (i.e. Akoumia Beach). This is named like this because the wider area of Triopetra was once the winter sheter of Akoumia village residents, who had built small cottages to spend the night near their olive groves. Today the land is still owned mostly by the residents of Akoumia and thus, most, hotel owners originate from the same village..
