Went last Saturday afternoon, found a free spot to park the car right next to the harbour, had a drink in bar that did some amazing beers and ciders.
It's a bit of a challenge to get to by car, but if you choose to drive park at the first place you find and walk.

A great day with a lot of beautiful nature and animals.
we did it as an alternative to the Samaria as we did not want to tramp through beautiful nature with a couple of thousand other hikers.

The last part of the driving is very curvy, but the view is amazing! 1) Parking: If the parking lot at the end is full, you can park along the road right before the parking lot.
If you love nature and unusual places, visiting Seitan Limani is a must.

Afrata Beach Platanias

We used the same way for return and admired the calmness of the countryside, stunning views on Cretan shore and intensive nature smell for Cretan pines.
Still worth a visit as its a wild place; one little bar which was closed and just nature around (we sow wild pigs and goats).
