  • This beautiful sandy beach is located in the North of Crete between Rethymnon - Petre and Georgioupolis. The total length is approximately 15 km. In the middle of the road branches off from the national road to Episkopi, right of it is a stretch of beach, which is equipped of the taverns there with parasols and sun loungers. To order a drink at the operation of the respective Tavern you are are even free. Also there is the possibility in the taverns also good and sufficient to make a meal. Continuously is a sandy beach located first when entering the sea turning into a gravel surface, although it again has sand after approx. 2 m under the feet. The water is so clean that you can see 25 metres to the ground. Strong waves can occur North and northwesterly winds, usually the water is however quiet to slightly wavy.
