“Very large...”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

It was a windy day, nobody was on the beach, we just wanted to see the rocks. It is amazing how big is the beach. I liked it very much.

“Serenity of the Mediterranean”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We hired a guide who drove us from the town of Rethymnon on the northern coast of Crete across the mountains to the southern coast of Crete where we reached the Mediterranean Sea. This is a must as you get to see the beauty of the country side in its natural state, the caverns, the goats, goat herders and the small charming villages. Once we crossed the mountains we came to Triopetra Beach on the Mediterranean. This is a gem along the southern coast. The beach provides some free umbrellas and lounge chairs. The beach is made from beautiful colored stones. I recommend some type of beach shoe. The area is known for its yoga retreats and for its three famous rock forms that protrude into the water. The peacefulness of this beach is comforting. The water is the most beautiful I have seen, calm, crystal clear and perfect for swimming. There is a typical taverna-cafe there 'Anoohkh" where you can sit in the shade and get delicious, inexpensive food and a great cold beer. Once you have come here you feel that you have experience something special. Enjoy!

“Wonderful when not windy”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

It is a virgin beach but the weather network should be checked for wind prior to going... It can truly hinder the experience. Going there with babies is not the easiest as there is some walking required.

“One of my favourite beaches in Crete”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

it looks like you landed on Mars. There is a beach bar and sunbeds, in one of the corners of this massive beach, but it is a rough landscape and if it is windy the sea is wild!! It is a lifetime experience though you shouldnt miss out on
