Tripiti beach is 5 km away east of Sougia and 68 km south of Chania, at the exit of the homonymous gorge. At the Acropolis of Trypiti was the ancient city of Poikilaosso, the port of ancient Elyros and a major shopping center for the Egyptians. Unfortunately, there are only a few minor and insignificant worries left in our days. The vertical rocks along the gorge and the coast are full of caves that have been named in the area and occupied by the dozens of kids who live here.
It has crystal clear blue waters and rocky seabed, and the only way to get here is either by boat from Sougia or following the European path E4 that starts from Sougia in the direction of Agia Roumeli. In the place of the beach, it is believed that there was the ancient city of Poikilaos with its protected natural harbor. This harbor was transformed into an alien with unlikely formations after major geological redevelopments in the 4th century.
At the exit of the Trypiti gorge, there is the chapel of Agios Nikolaos that is built on the rock. Quite higher on the path to Sougia are the ruins of an Ottoman fortress, as well as the chapel of the Prophet Elijah, which is celebrated every year by many people who arrive here from Sougia on 19 and 20 July.
500m east of Tripiti, you will see the beautiful pebbly beach of Sendoni, on the E4 path that leads from Sougia to Agia Roumeli. On the beach, there are some casual constructions of local beekeepers and stock farmers. The beautiful Sendoni beach features pebbles and deep blue waters.
