It's a really nice place were you can enjoy your family holidays. There are some mini markets and souvenir shop around in the area and many restaurants where you can enjoy traditional dishes. The beach is really nice for the kids.

Beautiful beach and very safe for children….soft sand and gently sloping too. Lots of sunbeds which are free if you purchase a drink from the cafes/tavernas

if you go to the part of the beach right beside the harbour you will find a beautiful sheltered area with very shallow water suitable for children of all ages, our 1 year old could walk out quite far in it as their was no waves or stones . we snorkelled out and only had to go as far as the entrance of the harbour to find shoals of beautiful tropical fish and also a big octopus. keep going passed the entrance to the harbour and you will get to a big basin around the rocks where it gets to about 5 or 6 metres deep.
good watersports on the beach and also lots of tavernas right on the beach. one has a cildrens slide and play house which is great for keeping the kids happy while you have a afternoon drink

The name of the village means long beach, and it is indeed quite long. There are some small hotels very close to the sandy beach and about 20 tavernas, small family run restaurants between the port and the rocky end of the beach. If you consume something (even just a coffee) you will be offered with free sunbed and umbrella. Even in the end of September the sea was warm enough to enjoy swimming in. This region of Crete has the highest number of sunny hours per year.

We love Makrigialos, we like to start our holidays here, it’s so relaxing the beach is shallow and sheltered, it is also ideal for families. There are bars if you want them. The prices are reasonable throughout.

Large beach that curves round the little town. Nice to swim from and some lovely tavernas behind serving good food.

We preferred the beaches to the eastern side of town (adjacent to the port) because they it lovely soft sand that was in a quieter end of town. Great tavernas and bars there too, awesome vista of the bay too.

Ideal seaside for daily swimming, sand bathing, relaxation. The rooms of the accommodation are actually on the beach and this is very helpful for ultimate enjoyment.

Brilliant beach that is calm and shallow. Great tavernas and eateries all along with a good choice of water sports at reasonable prices, for the more adventureous
Totally safe for a good long swim, a dip for none swimmers and shallow and calm enough for the toddlers to splash around.
