Spent lots of lovely hours here relaxing in the hot sun and beautiful views from sunloungers at the seashore. Lovely warm sea swimming and the taverna behind is ok if a little pricey and if you're not put off by the scary waitor with one eye!!

You turn the corner in the road and then you see this lovely beach with a few restaurants and boats. The other reviews say it all: there is somewhere to change reasonably priced loungers and umbrellas, the sea is warm and shallow it's safe for young and old, a lovely view and places to get a drink or have lunch...

We went to this beach after a busy day in Chania. Although it was in the wrong direction to our accommodation from Chania, my husband insisted on going to this beach because he'd read such good reviews. We were quite tired but the drive there was absolutely worth it. The water is crystal clearand the views are breathtaking. We swam... More

Very nice and beautyfull little beach with a lot of locals on the weekends. Hardly any waves and shallow water are brilliant for kids. The Cafés and Restaurants, especially Metaxumas, the last one on the harbour beach, are a must for a delicious Cappuccino or traditional lokal food. Take what ever Dimitris suggests - it will be great. Thanks for... More

Read the TA reviews and we took the short drive over several times during our 10 day stay. There is a really nice taverna just at the end of the road leading to the waterfront (also has the only decent toilets). There are plenty of sunbeds to hire (Euros 6 for two with a sun shade). The water is great... More

The beaches here are simply beautiful with clear water. However they are busy and car parking was tricky. Get there early if you are thinking of going in high season

I've just come back from staying near chains In Crete. We loved this beach. Gorgeous sand with a quite authentic feel to it. Lovely Greek taverna on the smaller cove. I would defiantly go back there

Pretty beaches and waters. Good for snorkeling. Has not been over developed or spoilt but still has a few nice tavernas around.

Great facilities, restaurants and a fair amount of parking. Only a 15 minute drive from Chania. Worth a trip. Water great. Even on windy days water is pretty calm. Lots of chairs for rent. Kiosk has cold beer, snacks, ice cream and other beverages. Restaurants will deliver drinks to yours seat as well.
