Really lovely beach this. Highly recommend you visit this beach whilst in Crete. Parking is easy, sea in clean, sandy beach and plenty of crabs to catch amongst the rocks!

We spent the day here, lovely sandy beach and a nice gentle slope in to the sea, lovely and clean. There are beach sellers that come round, you must try the chocolate donuts , they are to die for :)

We walked from our hotel, Triton Gardens, was maybe a 30 minute walk, but so worth it. The beach is beautiful and a lot quieter than the others in Malia. This is were the locals go on there days off.
