  • DIRTY SEA DON'T GO THERE !!! It is disappointing how dirty the water was. You could easily see the dirty layer floating on the surface of the sea with a distinctive yellowish color. I am very angry...  more »
  • 30mins away from Rethymno. A very long but also dirty beach. The water was awful and not clean at all. Not recommended.  more »
  • Really nice beach - clear water, some (gentle) waves, sandy with some small pebbles. There is also a very good taverna with play equipment for toddlers on the beach. Beautiful views of the White Mountains and a good place to watch the sunset.
