  • The best beach in Crete! Small beach, restaurant on the beach with free sunbeds and Wi-Fi, very kind boys at the bar. We left a computer in the beach and they kept it for us. Thanks a lot!!

  • Such a sweet spot. Visited by also locals. Transparent waters. Very laid back. In the evening there is shade because of a big tree. Cute little bar for drinks and traditional cuisine. Kids loved jumping off of rocks into the water.
  • Rocks to big to enjoy the beach. Snorkling I guess OK here but if it is windy even a bit, forget it. Water gets all mixed with sea bottom stuff that comes to the surface and you can't see anything. Not so good quality sunbeds either. Plenty of parking spots though.
  • Very beautiful calm beach we stopped by on our way to Elafonisi beach the owner of the cafeteria was too friendly to give us some delicious figs. And even a very nice shepherd from Afrata village gave us a box with plenty of delicious figs very friendly people
  • Small stoney beach, very lovely and intimate looking & feeling! Didn't have the chance to check the beach restaurant next to, but looked very good. Umbrellas and sunbeds available there, were for free at 5pm.
  • Amazing beach. Would recommend going later after 3pm when it's less crowded
