  • Excellent beach between Cosmos and Chania, is recommended to hang out. The water is very calm, super warm and you can walk pretty far unless the depth increases. We were practically alone, in June, to relax.

  • We went nearby several times and honestly, the beach looked gorgeous. I wish the weather was more accommodating, we would've made a stop to enjoy the transparent water and the endless sandy beach.  more »
  • A very beautiful beach which is easy to reach. Parking is available on the Expressway. We had our concerns from the restaurant Kyma (free after a Frappebestellung € 2.50), in September, it was not too full. Cross pebbles when going in the water, but there is no disturbing stone slabs, the water is absolutely clear, is quite deep after a few meters. The beach of Rethymno was us too full, so we were very gladly.
