Geocache Description:

Koraka paralia (means Koraka beach) is on the south coast near Rodakino (Rodakino means peaches).

Driving from Rethymnon, take the road signed for Hora Sfakion that passes through the Kotsifou Gorge, Selliá and to Kato Rodakino. In Kato Rodakino take the road to the left signed for Koraka beach and follow it to the western end and park here: N35 11.126 E24 18.258

Koraka beach is the place where the kidnapped German commander General Kreipe was sendt to Egypt under WW2 in 1944. The General was kidnapped outside Hiraklion and the resistance people took him all the way through the inland. The immediate result of this propaganda coup was a terrible vegeance against the Cretan population in the actual areas.

The cache is placed along the path marked from the parking place through the tarverna area over a small plateau to the west. Take the marked gate out from the taverna (blue sign) and follow red dots. The plateau is a nice and quiet place, so are the beaches westwards against Frangokastelli.

There are some tradeable stuff in the cache. A plastic bag is around the small container./p>
