Famous Stavros Beach, Crete - where the movie Alexis Zorbas was filmed

The World > Europe > Greece > Chania

  • thumbs down

A breathtakingly beautiful little bay (this is where the beach scenes in the movie Alexis Zorbas were filmed) as well as a longer, almost deserted sandy beach. Stavros is not a real village but more a conglomeration of houses built in the last two decades and more recently a fair number of small hotels and apartments. more: http://www.west-crete.com/holidays-stavros.htm
