Fodele beach, Heraklion Crete

The beach of Fodele is situated 3 kilometres far from the homonymous picturesque village at the North, and 23 kilometres far from Heraklion (via the National Road) at the West, some 1000 metres off the National Road Heraklion-Rethymno. It is a sandy beach affected by the "meltemia" (northern summer winds).

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.
