Kalypso Beach or Pirates’ Fjord is located south of Rethymnon, in a tiny cove south of Mouri or Karavos Cape, near Plakias. It is a very narrow cove, formed between enormous vertical cliffs. The tiny beach shaped here has sand at its starting point and doesn’t exceed 2m in width. It deepens abruptly and changes to a deep rocky harbor. The fjord is named after the pirates who took refuge inside this sheltered bay during the Byzantine era.
