|Description ||Port of Kommos.|
Located on the south central coast of Crete, Kommos supported the Palace of Phaestos and Agia Triada. It would have been ideal to reach trading partners in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt. There is a sandy beach and dunes in front of this port town, as sea levels appear to have changed dramatically in the last 3000 years.
Excavations are on-going, so the site is not accessible, but there is a good view through the fences and it's a lovely place to visit.
