I love this beach so much, to the point that when i am looking for other beach holidays to go on i always use this one as the "Golden Sample". Beautiful sand, warm shallow water. Lots of beach bars and restaurants! Love it!

Smashing beach, very gentle slope to the water safe for children. Plenty of sunbeds with no charge if staying at hotel. Not sure if this was the policy for all the hotels. Some bars/Restaurants had free sunbeds if you brought from them.

Beach is shallow and fine sand covers it well. Most of the bars give free chairs if you use their services.

Nice beach, fresh. Good for children and families. Nice beach restaurants and cafes. For adults, recommend Rethymnon instead.

The sand is fine, the beach remains shallow way out. Wonderful for kids, grown ups and elderly. 3rd time in a row here and we've walked all the beaches west of Chania.
