We've been here in the middle of november and had this dream beach completely to ourselves. Blue water, sandy beach, great waves - just awesome. In summer, it surely is very packed.

Good services: Food, beer, coffee, Jet ski etc. Very nice sand beach, a great place to spend a day. Plenty of parking spots and easy to find. Views are stunning to the mountains during sunset.

I'd obviously heard of Crete's famed western beaches, but this one seemed to lack the charm, beauty and milky blue frothiness that one finds in say the south coast beaches. The only taverna was set right back from the water, and a barman there didn't...More
