Kokkinos Pirgos is a small beach resort in the central south part of Crete. It is situated between Agia Galini and Matala and just one kilometer away from the town of Timbaki. The small port of the village separates the beach into two parts. The west part unfolds till Agia Galini. This part is rough with rocks and pebbles. You can walk till Agia Galini by the coast. It takes up to two hours to reach your destination. You might need to cross some parts through the water (knee high). For sure you will meet some nudist sunbathing on this part of the beach. The east part unfolds till Kommos and is called Kataliki. On the beach road are several cafes, taverns and restaurants. This part of the beach is organized with umbrellas and sunbeds. Mostly free of charge for the customers of the shops. Close to the rocks you have a safe and smooth enter into the sea. Recommendable for children! At the end of the beach road you can find the large marsh of Kataliki. In spring you can admire the local fauna here. The small harbor contributes to the nice holiday atmosphere of the village.
