From memory, (3 years ago!) I think it isn't encouraged, but as it's free entry to the complex I don't think it's a problem. Also there is a supermarket on site. I can't see a problem with taking food in anyway to be honest - as long as you're not setting up your own barbeque of course!!

It's not allowed and they check your beach bags as you go in.

Maybe things have changed, that's quite possible of course, but there are so many entry points, including the subway, and we never experienced or saw any checks at all on 3 or 4 visits. But then again, maybe we didn't notice because we are fairly geriatric...

Last year we walked down to star beach ,walking pasted the lg supermarket and walking along to the right going down to the beach by the children's water park area ,am I right in thinking if we had gone left there would be bigger slides/ rides and it was livelier for older teenagers ?

As you enter starbeach & go left there are about 6 slides which you went down in a rubber ring you paid €8 at the kiosk under the starbeach sign they were quite large & fast

Hi Tony

The season officially finishes at the end of October, but mid October it's going to be very quiet in the resorts, and some places will be starting to close up for the winter..... I can't comment on star beach, hopefully other will be able to - so to answer your question, yes you will get a tan in mid October but you could have some rain and cloud this late in the season, although for the last two years the weather has been great as we always travel at this time and later too....the sea will still be lovely and warm....I would suggest that if you do want to stay in Crete this late in the season you consider staying in or very near to one of the towns which remain open all year round, these on the north coast are from west to east, Chania, Rethymnon, Agios Nikolaos, Sitia and obviously Heraklion too....of course there are a few tavernas open in the villages, but to get a greater choice then I would consider the towns, or close by :-)
