“Peaceful in springtime”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Visited last week of April. Oranges and Lemon trees with fruit. Lots of flowers in bloom. Weather was perfect 22C-29C almost no clouds. Not all restaurants and shops open. Not crowded. Locals eager to start a new tourist season. Might well visit again , but must be outside main tourist season.

Some good ares of beach, but the beach near the Solimar Aquamarine was very rocky and pebbly. The beach did have life guard platforms but i never actually saw anyone sat in them!!!!

“One of the better beaches on Crete”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Sandy, not to deep, good for families. Many taverns around. A bit crowded and too "tourist-y" though.Also, not the easiest thing to find parking if you dont live on one of the nearby hotels.
