I remember it fondly 30 years ago. There was one rustic taverna with a couple of rooms. No sun beds just unspoiled golden sand with nudist areas on the east. A lovely walk from undeveloped plakias with hosts of butterflies on the way. Oh tourism!

No exactly (it is one inside the hotel which is there, Hapimag). But the nearest are in Plakias (and also in Lefcogia village in the way to Rethimno). Both are about five minutes with car.
