The beach is sandy and very nice for the kids. But, it was too windy when we were there thus the waves were big that one can be tossed from one side to the other. The sunbeds costed about 10 euro per set, a bit...More

Beach is long and wide and easy accessible by a car. Car parking is large enaugh. Water is clear, light blue and refreshing. Worth to be seen from western Crete.
