  • Exotic beach compensates for the long journey thereto, its path is complicated by car daily from Agios Nikolaos or more remote cities will not be easy to ride, but as the trip at one time will be unforgettable. Despite its distance from big cities, beach perfectly landscaped: big adjoining parking, hardwood flooring and Unleavened shower on the beach. There are cafes with elementary things, parking free toilets and shower. Parking itself (2.5 euro per day). Sunbeds, but fun just accommodate immediately for Daybeds in the Palm Grove. Exotica is indescribable. A heavenly place. Sandy Beach, the waves are moderate. Entertainment-you can climb the surrounding mountain-from there you can admire a view of the beach. After the beach be sure to visit the ruins of the ancient town of Itanos (Ethan). A very picturesque place. It was open to a free visit.

  • Visited many beaches of Crete. If you compare the time spent on the road, and impressions of the beach, then put 3 points out of 5. Go long, people very much, pkng found with difficulty. On the beach all lie side by side, places very little. We visited in October of Vai, what happens in the season it is terrible to imagine! Palms are very far from the sea. For comparison: in 2016 year we were in Corfu at Grecotel Daphnila Bay Thalasso 4 *, that's where the Palm trees near the sea, they grow on the beach and umbrellas. Cosy and warm, set in a sea of smooth, there were no waves. Conclusion: If the beach was not so far deserved greater evaluation. Suggest other beaches: in the East from remote beaches more liked the beaches of Xerokambos Bay!

  • Beautiful beach, which is special for the app. a breathtakingly 5000 wood. You cannot include the Palm trees go, is fenced, just along the coast from bar is open to visitors. Parking is EUR 2.5. Here also you might want to arrive early because the parking lot fills up quickly, and the crowd can be confusing. Next to the coast, and the amazing views of Cliff a few minutes walk from the beach as well. (There was jártunkkor completely empty, while Vai overcrowded.)
