Kouremenos is 17 km east of Sitia and 1 km east of Palekastro. The beach is the largest in the region with a length exceeding 1.5 km, with fine light brown sand, shallow waters and many tamarisk trees. It is a partially organized beach with umbrellas, showers and a bar. In the area above the beach there are several traditional taverns and restaurants. The wind in the area is ideal for those who love windsurfing and kite surfing and therefore attracts surf enthusiasts from all over Europe. There is a windsurfing school being operated during the Summer Season, where one can rent equipment or even learn how to windsurf or stand up paddle boarding (SUP).
