“Okay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Nothing special, long sandy beach with nice and clear water! the hotels are close and that is the good thing. There are much better beaches in Crete where you can go!

“The beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Nice sandy beach, appeared quite clean, even though it was mid summer there was plenty of space for everyone, the water was crystal clear, there was quite a breeze coming off the sea so you have to be careful not to burn, very hot spot and the sand does get very, very hot so you will need shoes.

“you can find better beaches”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Good sandy beach close to Heraklion, sometimes dangerous waves because of the summer northwest winds and overcrowded during weekends.
The urban scenery isn't the best

“Long beach, but hotels claim their part of it...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

The water is clear and the beach clean.
It's a long beach, so enough space, but hotels claim their part of it. If you don't want to pay for a chair or a parasol, you need to walk quite a distance.
