Visited here whilst driving around eastern Crete. Quite the most unexpected location with its own slice of history (Minoan), lovely beach and a number of Taverna's. Definitely worth a visit.

I loved this beach. If you're after water sports, sand or row after row of sun beds, don't come here. But if you want low-key, chilled out atmosphere with crystal clear water and a dramatic back-drop then I thoroughly recommend it ... it certainly left...More

Combine a stay at this great beach with the Valley of the Dead Gorge walk. Enjoy the nice, calm and quiet beach (at least in the middle of july) with crystal clear water. Free sun beds when you order something but be observant of which...More

Long spacious beach with some sand and easy swimming. Nice breeze comes off the sea to give some respite from the sun and heat.

This is a pretty stony which also implies good snorkelling visibility. However, we didn't see much by way of fish. Simple but nice cafe on the beach front

Fabulous little beach with water at least ten shades of blue and crystal clear. Most of the beachside tavernas offer loungers and umbrellas free if you have dined. Works perfectly!
