I was there almost alone, not too many tourists (which I prefer). Totally worth the drive! There were sunbeds and the water was clear, big waves and just the perfect ammount of wind!

This beach is an amazing natural setting, a little paradise, very quit, and seren, a beach to discover for dreaming, swimming and relaxing, a real treasure; nice little restaurant; be sure to kick back.

We weren't really planning to come here, but it was a natural stop when driving from Elafonissi to Chania. It was a windy day so swimming was difficult, as the beach has very large pebbles - but it was really quiet and the fresh fish...More

Friday 22nd July 2016. We ate at taverna Thalami which is right next to this beach. The area is not at all built up - very rural and quiet. Not sure I'd like to bathe in the sea from here - with all the pebbles...More

Excellent stop-over for lunch or coffee on a trip down the coast road. The beach is stone and shingle so swimmers will appreciate sea shoes. Laid back ambience and typical taverna fare with a great view.

Go to this beach if you want to feel real nature. It is a peacefull place, not so crowded as other popular beaches. Try the food in the taverna's nearby. There is no sand actually and the waves are quite big, so maybe not so...More

It is amazing how much deserted coastline there is, considering the beauty, easy access, free shaded parking and watering-holes all within a few yards.

Response from Greedymort | Reviewed this property |
I'd agree with the previous respondent that it's too far to walk. The coast is steep and rocky so you'd need to use the road, there would be a lack of shade and there are hairpin bends making it a longer walk than you'd... More
