Overview
More
.A quiet, sandy beach, shallow water, great for children, with 2 beach bars and groups of sun beds. With rivers at either end of the sheltered cove, the beach is known locally as the "cold beach". You can work out why!You can also walk up the small church on the headland, snorkel or swim off the rocks, and visit the ancient ruins or the World War II gun embankments.

We came by Kalyvaki beach on a boat trip from Rethymno. The water is fairly cold due to a nearby river sending cold freshwater into the sea, making the first 10 cm off water cold. Apart from that it is a really nice place to...More

This beach is really well worth a visit...Its protected from the prevailing winds so just a cool breeze rather than the stronger winds normally experienced on the north coast. The beach shelves gently and is great for non-confident swimmers or kids. Sun shades plus two...More

Another spectacular beach on Crete. Clearwater beautiful place… And there's a great hotel right behind the speech that has a phenomenal rooftop deck it's called the Georgioupolis Beach-Hotel. Highly recommend you could walk straight from your room down to the beach

Visit this beautiful beach if you can feel ok with cold water! All locals go there, that's something!

This is a beautiful beach just outside Georgioupoli town, with taverna, sunbeds and umbrellas. There is enough room to allow you to avoid the "organised" area if that is your preference. However, because of the presence of freshwater springs in the sea bed the water...More

The 2 respondents are correct. It is a very nice beach and there is a small hotel at the far end. There is also a nice beach bar and a separate taverna.
