Seitan Limania
The Beach 

Seitan Limania is a well-hidden corner of the northeast side of the Akrotiri peninsula, 20 km from the city of Chania, Crete.

There you will find a beach that differs from other beaches.

Nature created three inlets between the steep cliffs of the peninsula. In one of them is located the well-hidden beach.

Location is known as Seitan Limania. The word "Seitan" (Seytan) is Turkish (apparently left over from the period of Turkish rule in Crete), and is translated as Satan, devil. Furthermore, the word "Limania" is a Greek word meaning harbors. Therefore, "Seitan Limania" means "The Satanic Harbors".

Nice satanic harbor, don't you think? Admire sea color!
