“Beach paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We love the tranquility of it, the clear sea and the nudist section at the very far end. Amazing place!

“Not pretty!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

A long drive along the far coast of Crete. Rather ugly and untidy, then you arrive at the castle/fort. It is interesting but for me not worth the drive. Expensive food at the taverna, very dissapointed in the whole visit

“A tranquil haven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Our accommodation at in one of the Stonerooms at Mylos was 3 meters from the waters edge on this superb Cretan beach. With the stunning backdrop of the mountains and Frangocastello castle behind it it is truly an idyllic place. Perfect for young families with its super shallow little bay on the west side and soft sand this beach is a little piece of heaven. Lounger and parasol rental for us lazy types and a couple of pedaloes for the sporty. Some decent tavernas a few meters behind the beach cater for the hungry. Nothing to do here but chill out and take in the stunning views. Perfect!

“Taverna below Castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Lovely Taverna, the beach fine for those who like it sandy and flat. We were searching for rocks though!
