Ombrosgialos: A Hidden Rocky Cove
Ombrosgialos or Ombros Gialos is a remote rocky cove (there is no beach) with deep blue crystal clear waters and amazing sea depth ideal for snorkelers. Ombrosgialos is located 25 km east of the charming town of Chania and 15 km from the Kalives village in Apokoronas. There is a small bay with a dock, from which swimmers usually dive.
Next to the bay there is a tavern, very famous for the fresh fish and octopus dishes.
The beach is generally isolated and nearly unknown to everyone. Formed at the exit of a rocky gorge and into the arms of a long narrow bay. Pebbles and large stones, which impede a little swimming. It is ideal for fishing and isolation. Of course, you must arrange to have all your necessities, such as umbrellas, food and water.
To get here you need to follow the road that leads north from the village to the Cape Drepano. From there follow the road to the lighthouse and after 700 m you will see a sign on your left. Then drive down to the beach. Worth to mention that near the beach there is a large, wonderful cave.
