Golden sands, crystal clear water and lots of good tavernas all around. The beach was very clean and quiet, plus you have lots of sun beds to choose from.

40minutes from Rethymno and what a delightful little place.. white sand clear blue water, very clean. Some lovely places to eat too. Although we had stopped at a little Taverna on the way.. worth a visit for a beach trip..

A lovely little beach with plenty of parking. Swimming in the sea was wonderful it was crystal clear, you can get a water taxi to Plakias and Preveli beach.

This is a beautiful large clean beach. On the one side full of classic good Greek tavernas then on the ither side a canteen. Not bad for a visit maybe even more depending on how much time you have.

We spend 3 hours here when we visited Preveli. It's the place where you can take a boat to go to visit Preveli beach and palms forest.
