Close enough to Heraklion, it is a well organised
beach with accommodation facilities in hotels and rooms to let, taverns
and cafes for food and drink and swimming and sunbathing facilities (sunbeds,
umbrellas etc); sea sport facilities are also available.
Access from Heraklion is easy, as public buses run regularly; you can
also use a taxi and of course rented or private car and motorbikes.
It is recommended to reach the beach following the old road. You should
drive fore some 2 to 2,5 kilometres more, but the landscape is better
and the way more interesting. And, you may combine your swimming and
sunbathing with a sightseeing of the area; and don't forget that Fodele
has been the birth place of the famous painter El Greco (Domenicos Theotokopoulos)
and there is a Museum about him in the village.
