.A quiet, sandy beach, shallow water, great for children, with 2 beach bars and groups of sun beds. With rivers at either end of the sheltered cove, the beach is known locally as the "cold beach". You can work out why!You can also walk up the small church on the headland, snorkel or swim off the rocks, and visit the ancient ruins or the World War II gun embankments.

Another spectacular beach on Crete. Clearwater beautiful place… And there's a great hotel right behind the speech that has a phenomenal rooftop deck it's called the Georgioupolis Beach-Hotel. Highly recommend you could walk straight from your room down to the beach

This is a beautiful beach just outside Georgioupoli town, with taverna, sunbeds and umbrellas. There is enough room to allow you to avoid the "organised" area if that is your preference. However, because of the presence of freshwater springs in the sea bed the water...More

This is a beautiful sandy cove with clear, shallow water. However, as others have said, it is very cold as it is fed by the mountain stream. It can get busy at weekends but it's worth visiting.

We've been visiting this beach for 15+years, and in all that time it hasn't changed a bit! The water is clear with plenty of little fishes, and cold on top (which can be very refreshing on a sultry day). Very safe for kids and non-swimmers....More

First off... This is an awesome beautiful beach. Clear water, shallow, wonderful for kids, and cheap even for Crete standards. The umbrella and two beach bed rental fee was only 5 Euro. But...this is something that makes it both awesome and challenging. Even in July,...More

Good food, great service and a lovely location to swim and sunbathe. A fab family beach. The calamari is fresh and just soooo scrumptious.

The 2 respondents are correct. It is a very nice beach and there is a small hotel at the far end. There is also a nice beach bar and a separate taverna.
