it appeared to be man made as the sand was grey as the shore line and into the water was all shingle

it was only 100m from our hotel so it was convenient but it was a little bit deep waters..maybe that changes with the seasons but when we went it was a bit deep for our likings.

Great beach to relax, swim or build sandcastles. There are a lot of loungers but they are great and you are sure to find one to your taste.

There are some fantastic beaches in Crete, but unfortunately this isn't one of them. The water's clean and it's fine if you just want to flop and read a book at the back of your hotel in Platanias (incidentally, Platanias isn't a good place to stay), but there are infinitely nicer beaches only a short drive away. Don't waste your time with this beach.
