We have been here many times as my other half’s parent live in Crete. It is a very authentic beach bar restaurant with excellent food. In fact to say it’s authentic doesn’t do it justice. Try the Sardella, filleted sardines, or one of the daily...More

This is a great beach with rocks and warm water. It is really nice for snorkelling. We rented the sunbeds with canopy and we received two plates with fruits and water.

This beach is definitely worth visiting. It's a beautifully secluded pebble beach that doesn't get too busy and it is very scenic. The water is clear and really interesting to snorkel around - if you're brave you should swim through the cave. It's essentially nestled...More

Nice rocky beach with a Tavern, but nothing special. Yes, it is nice to see but nothing extraordinary, there are more beautiful beaches all over Crete. Almost forgot, at the Tavern you can rent a Sumbed and an Umbrella for 5€.
