  • The beach, elsewhere remembered as Erimoupolis, is located on the northeast edge of Crete, not far from the crowded and unceasing Vai. At the end of September there were several people, very well distributed between the three beaches. The central one is wide, with perfect access to the sea: despite the exposure to the east here the sun remains almost until sunset. The north side of the beach, more secluded and separated by a rock that reaches the beach, is reserved for naturists: it is narrower and closed by a wall, so the shade arrives earlier, but it is enchanting, with a wonderfully clear water. The beach to the south is more open, and is located just below the archaeological site, which preserves the ruins of a port city active from the Minoan era to the Byzantine era. As is often the case in Crete, the description of the site is completely non-existent, but the place is certainly fascinating.

  • Lovely place, quiet, not equipped like the nearby Vai. Those who want to walk the dirt paths, can reach several deserted coves. It's not a place for old people!

  • Stunning beach, off the tourist trails. A must see if you visit the island by car, very easy to get to.

  • Small beach, close to the overly touristy Vai. Great alternative to Vai. Beach not equipped. But very quiet and uncrowded. It is located at the foot of some ruins. Swimming you can see some finds still submerged. I recommend it. It's three bays behind each other. The first one, the ruins, is right next to the parking lot. The other two are one on the right and the other on the left.

  • Small hidden beach... Completely natural, without landscaping, so free, but so nice... At the top stands the Fort of Itanos...

  • Small collar, if it blows in the rest there you usually bathe. Great water.
