  • It's a touristic beach, very beautiful and great for snorkeling, but crowded. Depends what you are looking for. The tavern there has only fast food, so it's better to take something to eat. Parking costs 3€,so it's a good price.
  • Excellent beach with palm trees. Fully orginezed. Parking is 3 euros. Sunbeds and umbrella 10 euros. One of the best beaches in Crete. My recommendations you won't regret.
