Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing sandy beach, very cleaned, not windy, perfect for kids. Toilets, showers, bar with food and drinks. You can walk for kms towards Chania town. My Cretan beach. Highly recommended!

Beach is nice, sand lovely & soft. Good service by staff. Only criticism is the toilet situation that can only be described as a prisoner of war camp toilet. I have literally been in nicer port-a-loo’s 2 days into a festival. If the hole in the floor (toilet) that requires a deep squat to use, isn’t enough to turn your stomach, the smell will surely get your gag reflexes working. Enter at your own risk. Feel sorry for anyone with disability issues trying to use this toilet. Shame as everything else at this beach was faultless

This is the best beach we have visited during our stay in Chania, Crete. The water is relatively warmer than elsewhere, no excessive currents, but yet lovely small waves. The beach is not overcrowded.There are ample umbrellas & the people who look after them are very attentive, finding a good spot for you, emptying your personal dustbin regularly & brushing sand off the rental recliners regularly. The kiosk serves a lovely selection of food, snacks & ice-cold drinks.
Everybody is friendly & speaks really good English. I can only recommend this beach!
