White sand and turquois colored sea - what else do you need? Caribbean feeling in Europe. Only missing some palm trees.

This Island was our best experience in Crete. The trip is one hour each way from Lerapetra. The water are clear with wonderful light blue colors. If you like swimming in the Ocean - do not miss.

I was there in 2012. There wasn’t much to see while snorkeling. Ver few and small fish. I tried both sides of the island. But the water in August was warm and pleasant. And the island is gorgeous!
