Well worth the drive - and magnificently opens up only at the last minute - and an exceptional vision of simple enjoyment and peace, with goodwill all around! A simple bar and basic facilities - exactly as it should be. Beautiful clear-blue waters and warm swimming and wading & paddling. Some shades for early arrivals! Incomparable. Lovely.

We visitited it after we were sunbathing in Falassarna in the morning. We took the road on the west coast of Crete which is both spectacular and difficult (very narrow). It was impressive to see the place where 2 seas join - Mediteranean and Libian Seas. Beautiful. I have seen a similar place in south of Rhodes Island.

Definitely worth a visit, doesn't feel like your in Europe! Very large beach area so even when really busy didn't feel too overcrowded. Unfortunately it was a very windy day when we visited with sand regularly hitting us like knives, but we didn't get it spoil our day. There is a large car park, a small reasonably price café on...

Iconic beach which, although crowded in high season is big enough to accommodate everyone. Quite a drive and can be windy.

When it gets really hot, you should come to this beach. The currents keep the water refreshing and the place is great. The beaches (yes, there are many) are really nice and safe. You could take your little toddler and be sure that they won't be swept away.

One of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world! Light blue or green water, with pink sand! Amazing place, with many small beaches to explore around. Highly recommended!

Omg this place is stunning, its a treck to get there but its so worth the effort, if you think you need to fly to the carribean or bali for the beaches you are so wrong, this beach smashes them out of the park. Its heaven on earth well protected and i think cretes best kept secret. There is a... More

That beach is so nice and worth the visit. The water is so clear and clean. Although it was a little bit cold. If you like to surf so it's a good choice. It's much more expensive than the other place in Crete. From Chania it's possible to take the bus that leave at 9 am and back at 5pm.... More
