Quite a drive from Sitia but well worth it. Whereas Sitia was overcast and windy this beach was sheltered and sunny. Gently shelving, yellow sand with hardly a ripple. Clean, almost deserted beach but then we did visit at the end of May. Parking easy...More

Dropped by on our day road trip from Elounda... looks like a great Beach, clear water and surrounded by an old Dorian City, very local.

Amazing clear water, golden sandy beach, right next to an archaeological site. Wonderful spot, not crowded by tourists, at least it wasn't at all when we visited. Highly recommended if you like peaceful amazing sandy beaches.

Itanos Beach is at the end of the road in the north east corner of Crete. It is tiny, but perfect. No beds, umbrellas, or tavernas, but sand, palm tree, and beautiful blue sea. Hardly anyone was there.
