It is a fairly well organised beach, with tourist facilities, but less
crowded than the nearby Aghia Pelaghia; however this vicinity allows
the visitor to combine swimming in a quiet beach with the wide range
of alternatives for accommodation, food and drink and amusement available
in Aghia Pelaghia.
Access from Heraklion is very easy: public bus services are very frequent,
taxi is a good and more comfortable alternative and you can always use
rented or private car. Following the old road you will get to the beach
after a 24 kilometres drive from Heraklion.
