Kavros is a tiny village in the western bay of Rethymnon. Today, the name however also stands for whole coast section between the mouth of Petres creek and the fishing village of Georgioupolis.
During thousands of years, the wind and the drift formed an 11 kilometers long sandy beach which towards West becomes wider and wider, and continues under water. It therefore also suits for little children.
