I loved staying at this beach - so peaceful once the sun is starting to set. The only thing that bothered me were people who were walking up and down the beach, selling knock-off bags, watches and other things. They weren't pushy though, so that was nice. Oh and there aren't any public restrooms, so I have no idea where... More

the beach could be calm one day and the next with waves, ideal for playing with the waves or relax.... even with the waves it is safe as it is shallow

It's a beach near most amoudara hotels, so is a place where you can take a rest after going back from day trips, or spend part of the day on seaside, looking the sea, the waves and the mountain. But the beach itself is not so touristic.

The eastern strip of the beach is best, very clean but a little pebbly towards to front. Relaxing and not too crowded - perfect for a weeks tanning session

Our hotel was a few minutes from the beach, that is why we spent quite some time there when we needed a break from day trips. The beach is extremely long, full of sun beds, umbrellas, tavernas and bars. There are showers scattered every few hundred metres, but do not expect rest rooms or changing rooms. You may use the...

It has some good spots here and there, but in general it is not the cleanest or the best beach you will find in Heraklion. Maybe try your luck to the east (or west) Surely you ll be better!
