  • Had sold us a beautiful beach with a Palm Grove. We did 2 hours drive to get to parking. The beach is quite small invaded paid sunbeds and the inaccessible Grove. We are accustomed to the beach because we live 5 minutes from a beach but it did us not dream. If you are nearby why not, but do not have as many road for that.

  • For us the most beautiful beach in Crete! We have spent a beautiful day in paradise there.

  • After a short journey from Sitia, through banana plantation, where Europe's loveliest small bananas grow, you will reach the parking lot, where it costs a little to get "dytten" parked. From here reveals the beach itself, with fine sun beds as well as a small "loccer" where you can store its values. It costs a bit, but is worth it. The water is super, although rocks on the seabed must be taken seriously.
