Xerokambos is located in the far south-east of the island. Until recently the access was by a dirt road and it prevented many people from going there. There is now an asphalted road from Ziros and the dirt road from Zakros is being improved (and probably asphalted). So it might grow to more than the few houses that it is at the moment.
Location of Xerokambos
Getting there: Xerokambos is far away from everything and you will need your own vehicle.
Atmosphere: you feel very much at the end of the world, the lanscape around Xerokambos is fairly harsh. Only suitable if you are really looking for remoteness.
Accommodation: there are quite a few houses offering holiday studios and apartments.
Restaurants: a few simple tavernas
Shopping: only very limited
Beach: several small beaches, partly rocky plates and partly fine sand. You will rarely find more than a handful of people on them. The beach is well suited to small children as the sea is fairly shallow.
