About Kato Zakros
The beautiful tamarisk-fringed pebble beach hosts several excellent fish tavernas where visitors can sample local delicacies in attractive surroundings. The area is also home to a Minoan Palace, which is one of the most significant archaeological sites on the island.
Some keen walkers may want to explore the “Valley of the Dead”, which leads down from Pano Zakros to the sea at Kato Zakros. Although the village attracts many visitors during the day, Kato Zakros becomes peaceful towards the evening, and offers an ideal setting for those trying to escape from the bustle of daily life.
