Successive to the beach of Kokkinos Pyrgos, within
the open Messara bay, this beach is situated some some 68 kilometres
far from Heraklion at the Southwest and 3 kilometres western to Tymbaki.
The beach is open to the South and affected by the strong winds blowing
in the area.
Not much organised, the beach is close enough to Tymbaki and closer
to the small port of Kokkinos Pyrgos. The beach itself does not offer
accommodation and food and drink facilities, but in short distance you
will find hotels and rooms to let, as well as some fish taverns. Access
from Heraklion is possible by rented or private cars and motorbikes.
