Steep long steps but worth it. Water sports and cafe also on beach. Very small beach and chargeable sun beds.

We spent many hours on this beach. It is quiet and peaceful. There are plenty of trees for shade. Ample parking.

I was in Istron for a few hours. Came across this beach. It is the most spectacular beach I have ever visited. The sea was so clear. Next time I am in Crete I will spend longer here. Awesome

Warm, beautiful, secluded (especially when last week in september) and nice snorkling. We just loved the kantina on the beach!

We were looking for secluded beaches with clear water in Crete, and this beach was near us, so we thought we would give it a try, after reading all the reviews here. First, at 10 in the morning the place was already very crowded. The...More

Very nice beach, sandy and clean. Loads of children and families, so can be a little noisy for those who like super quietness
