Fantastic beach

The colour of the sea is amazing here. Next stop Lybia! Well worth a visit. Cone here after the Imbros gorge to rest those tired muscles. Have lunch at one of the excellent tavernas.

A lovely little secluded beach. Hardly anyone else there when we were there; the water’s clear and warm and there’s a few Greek tavernas within walking distance! A great place!

Beautiful beach and a perfect beach to look at the sunset. Crystal clear water and the temperature are great.

A dreamy place in southern Crete...will travel you in time
Aug 2020 • Friends
Frangokastello is for me a magical place. Franks, Normans, Saracenes, Eastern Romans still dwelling the corridors and the bastions of the well preserved castle. The beach underneath is crystal clear- recommended). Half of it offers sun beds/ umbrellas ( the combo goes for 8-10€) and in the other half you can set down for free using your own shade-or not! Or visit the nearby cafe and get a drink or coffee etc. Usually protected from strong wind gusts, offers a nice relaxing view of the Libyan Sea.
PS. Last time the Castle was closed for restoration, guess it must be finished by the end of 2020. Check with the locals of planning a tour inside.

A very nice and clean beach that should be visited by anyone who goes south Crete for summer vacation.

The naturist beaches on Crete are absolutely fabulous and this one at the far eastern end was magic . And there are many more on the island . The water is warm while the sun is sure to give you that all over tan .

Delightful beach with a castle in the background

We walked on the beach before enjoying an ice cream from the taverna. The view was lovely as a river runs along side.

Still Relatively Unspoilt

Pleased to find that Frangokastello hasn't changed too much since I was last there some 12 years ago. Some sunbeds and umbrellas for hire have appeared on the main beach, but Orthi Ammos to the East is still the same.

Overrated place without beauty and Charme
Oct 2019 • Friends
We came here because everywhere in the internet frangokastello is said to be so beautiful, it’s always on the top 10 Crete beach list. Sorry, what a overrated valuation. People who say this haven’t seen the real beauty. We just came from a real beautiful southern Crete beach, which is not on that top 10 list, and we will keep this secret, but a million times more lovely and beautiful than these flat charmless spots here. The landscape around these beaches are totally boring. It’s not ugly, it’s ok, it’s plain, nothing more. but defiantly not Wort to be in the top 10 list. And yes: charmless is the Perfect Description, in particular if you just came from a beauty of a beach and a landscape. We are just quickly heading back there, loosing one night we booked here in advance. It’s not worth to stay.
