Red Beach

An ancient Minoan ritual!
The guides of The Northwest Passage enjoy an ancient Minoan beauty ritual, then strike a pose for the camera! After a sublime morning of kayaking, the group convened at Red Beach, near Matala, Crete for a rest stop and a recharge! The Northwest Passage has been guiding tours of Crete for over 20 years, specializing in kayaking and hiking. Rooted in experiential travel, the trips offer total indulgence in Greek culture, dining at small tavernas, staying at family-owned inns, and exploring ancient culture and ruins on the island.

Red Beach Carvings
The soft stone of Red Beach features some beautiful and diverse carvings. We travel to the beach by sea kayak, which is a short paddle from Matala, Crete.
