in front of the homonymous village, almost along the road, quite noisy
and crowded in summer. Fully open to the Cretan Sea, it is affected
by the northern winds. It is found 12 kilometres far from Heraklion at
Fully organised and very close to Heraklion, the beach offers full accommodation
facilities in many hotels of any kind and category, food and drink in
several fish taverns, restaurants, beach bars and cafes. Facilities for
swimming and sunbathing (numerous sunbeds, umbrellas and showers), safety
(lifeguards) and sea sports are also available on the beach.
As it is very close to the road, it is very popular to young people.
The beach bars with the loud modern music make it an ideal place for
all those preferring "high volume" amusement.
