Apanemia started in 1996, the taverna is on the eastern and smaller of the two beaches at Triopetra or locally known as Akoumia beaches.
It's run by Stelios and Georgia and with the help of Stelios's family, a Yoga centre a few hundred yards away are the only other developments on this isolated and rugged bay in Southern Crete.
The small village of Agios Pavlos is a mile to the east and the lively port of Agia Galini is about 35 minutes drive away.
The beach is coarse sand and gently slopes down into the warm Libyan Sea. The beach is sheltered by the Triopetra rocks, and is wonderful for swimming snorkelling and fishing
