    Unfortunately, the beach is a bit far, but if you don't have to do hours of car worth it (we've made almost two and a half) is not as busy as I have read in previous reviews (we've seen far busier!!) Crystal clear water, just get a little deep, Climbing a staircase you can admire the scenery, the beach by the sea and the beautiful colors? with shades of green and blue, unfortunately we could not plant the ns umbrella due to the wind on the way back we stopped to eat at a taverna in Agios Nilolaus. Great day!

    So many people on the beach, I have not seen anywhere else in Crete. As a herring in a barrel, so find a free place for us was almost impossible. Probably, it was early in the morning to come, but we host the morning splendidly bathe. ;) And palm trees they have Palm trees-where we have not seen them. The sea is very salty waters than in the South of the island, where we rested. Oh and the road to the beach quite winding (as well as to other interesting beaches). We personally liked more Beach Xerokambos Bay.

    I don't know if it's the most beautiful beach of Crete but undoubtedly the color and the blue-green water cleaning, frame the surrounding hills with the Mediterranean vegetation and the Palm Grove behind make a scenario to remember
