We went to the beach. Very clean and well organised by staff. Two beautiful days allowed us to have a dip which was refreshing. Later in the evening we saw the sun set. I've seen many sun sets around the world and this one was also an amazing experience. Absolutely loved every moment.

This is considered as the city beach for Heraklion with easy access by bus. The area has lots of restaurants, souvenir shops, shopping centres etc. as well as cineplex to keep you occupied

Avoid this place like the plague. Unless you like hot sand, warm saltwater, cool breezes, bright sun, and total enjoyment.

Nice beach. Very touristic. Amnisos beach is better. The water is clean and have a beautiful color. There is nothing else to do in the area.
