  • Yesterday we went to Frangokastello as is our tradition when staying on Crete. The castle is fascinating but while we all love the idea of dipping our toes in the Libyan Sea, STAY AWAY FROM THE BEACH....  more »
  • Beach visited. Love the fortress, so could not arrive. Came from Georgioupolis through Chora Sfakion (from there by ferry chased in Loutro is super!). The fortress got the evening, did a photo without people, quickly plunged and drove back to darkness. drive serpentine. Not scary, but caution at the outset. Beach in Crete, many beaches are much better, and after amazing transparent water in the village of Loutro is generally about nothing! Go worth it only if you find yourself somewhere nearby.

  • Sandy Beach, clean, with plenty of headroom, usually protected, excellent for children. The castle in the back gives you a special feeling. Visiting the Castle, swimming at the beach, eating at restaurants, fills all your day beautiful!

  • Lovely beach and drive. A bit out of way but worth it.
  • Beaultiful!!
  • If you have read the story, and is part of the local traditions, the visit is something scary, especially when the wind catches in the ruins. Then the Cretans killed return in the early morning in the time around the anniversary of the battle between the rebels and the Ottoman occupation in the Fort. Preferably in the late spring, from late May to early June. So watch out.

  • Unfortunately the Sun came and went, and during his brief appearances showed the turquoise and blue and all other shades of the sea and the seabed where there was sand but big rocks you could see the color of the fish. Thank goodness the Guide pointed to this beach as a sort of laguna partly sheltered from the vento....in reality they looks small sand squalls needles. Let's say a special day.
