Beautiful family friendly long sandy beach with shallow water. We were there on a breezy day but there was no surf. There is a nice concession and kids play area. It was worth the hour long drive from Chania.

Nice beach to visit. Unfortunatly we couldn't swim because of the wind and waves. You can see the sunset. Nearby you can find restaurants for snacks or for lunch.
