You can just walk a minute and have a great sandy beach on your feet.. Relax or have fun in a big sandy beach with some quiet cafes on the top of it.

This is a wonderful sandy beach with crystal clear waters. But as with most beaches of southern Crete it all depends on Aiolos the god of the wind. If the wind blows from the north west then the sand gets blown around and makes you...More
