Amazing place, away from the crowds, just as it is supposed to be when searching for a quite and memorable beach. Keep in mind that there aren't many places to protect yourself from the sun, though! Don't miss the chance to go there! Amazing!

It's quite far from Chania! 2,5 hours until Sfakia and then half hour by water taxi to the beach!
