Located on a hill up above the sea, the tiny village of Ravdoucha enjoys breathtaking view over the Kissamos gulf. It is located at the beginning of the rocky Rodopos peninsula which is characterized by its barren mountainous landscape where the only buildings are a few old churches and a monastery.

The houses of Ravdoucha are terrace-built above the sea, and the winding road can take you down to a small pebbly beach with rocks around the shore, perfect for snorkeling. The distance from the village to the beach is about 3 km. In the village there are no shops or restaurants, except for a small cafe but a few nice taverns can be found around the beach, known by the locals. You can explore the Rodopos peninsula via unpaved road leading to the beach of Menies, where you can also see the ruins of ancient Minoan sanctuary called Diktinna.
