Psari Forada beach, Heraklion Crete

88 kilometres far from Heraklion at the Southeast and 58 kilometres western to Aghios Nicolaos, the beach of Psari Forada, or Sidonia, as it is also called, is a sandy beach with thick dark sand and several tamarisk trees offering their welcome shade in summer. The beach is not affected by the winds blowing in the area.

Rather remote and not much organised, the beach does not offer swimming and sunbathing facilities (sunbeds, ubrellas) nor sea sport facilities; but the sea is crystal clear and  the beach quiet enough without big crowds of visitors.

A few rooms to let are available for accommodation in the small settlement at the beach; in the few taverns of the settlement the visitor may enjoy fresh fish, tasty local dishes and, of course abundant Cretan wine and "tsikoudia".

Access from Heraklion is possible only by rented or private cars and motorbikes, via the village of Viannos. From Aghios Nicolaos you will arrive to the beach via Myrtos. If you choose this route, bear in mind that a part of the road (some 7 kilometres long) is a dirt track.
