    Pretty beach with the Castle and the sea. Possibility to rent sunbeds and umbrellas. Accessible by the parking of the Castle

    Fragokastello Beach offers plenty of space and numerous umbrellas and sun beds, you can choose to swim in the East where the sea is slightly more agitated, or move westward where there is a small Bay with clear water and very low. It is worth to take a swim in both places Arrived on this beach early in the morning we found so much wind, but then calmed down by becoming a breeze that does not feel the heat of August. Behind the beach there are some tavernas to eat or find shelter from the sun while drinking something cool.

    Decide with your friends to visit the castle of Frangokastello. Paved route from Rethymno via Miriokefaly (visit of the eponymous Monastery). Most impressions gained from the road. Very nice views of Crete opens on this trip! Very severe serpentine from Miriokefaly to Frangokastello, not sure motorists better not go this way. But such crazy landscapes you won't see anywhere else in Crete. monastery in Miriokefaly one of the oldest on the island. Fortress of Frangokastello has not made special impressions preserved walls and one tower. Entrance fee €2 per person

Where to stay in Sfakia

Thanks to the rugged terrain of Crete's southwestern coastline, Sfakia remains a tiny settlement with just a few hotels, which offer clean rooms with sea views. Most people rush through Sfakia on their way to the island's more popular resorts, which means that you can choose from affordable rooms in town even at the height of tourist season. A good alternative to hotels, the area's family-run guesthouses provide simply furnished rooms, hearty local dishes, and easy access to nearby beaches.
