  • Recommended by some locals to visit this beach, and after reading the reviews, we decided to visit it too. The way to get there by car is very narrow and in both directions. Walk the walk is not at all impossible, indeed. However the disappointment was really so when we saw this beach so undeservedly, praised. Besides being really narrow, (we arrived very early) the place was dirty, full of rubbish and really lacks any charm. The sea is not bad, but really not worth the ascent (and descent) by car. We escaped. We have witnessed, but were told that around 11.30 arrive the barges with tourists which make it even more unlivable. There are beaches much much beautiful and worthy.

  • After 10 minutes you dirt road by car and 10 in the same street you find yourself in this small Bay of clear water. A small strip of beach not equipped, without chioschini X drinking and eating. Only Sun and sea ... wonderful. Unfortunately the morning calling some boats with tourists and the situation becomes affollata...ma is absolutely worth going.

Where to stay in Elounda

Beachfront hotels in Elounda provide well-appointed rooms and suites with sweeping views of Crete's coastline. Lavish comfort and proximity to the sea come at a steep price, so if you have a tight budget, consider staying farther away from the upscale seafront. A short drive out of town gives you access to affordable lodgings in good-value inns and self-catering apartments. Alternatively, avoid Elounda's big crowds and high prices by booking your stay in nearby Agios Nikolaos, a lively town packed with inexpensive hostels and family-run guesthouses.
