Best to visit early morning or late evening after tour boats have gone. We drove over the causeway and parked our car at the church car park.

One beach were you must visit when you travel to Crete! It’s a small beach close to elouda... many people choose to walk until there , some other they take a car or a boat!

Very small beach. Not easy to access by foot Go on a boat trip to Spinalonga with a BBQ / Swim option The sand under foot is the only plus

Hidden away over a hill, a almost private strip of paradise. A sandy urchin free beach bathed in sunshine.
