It is a rather quiet beach, not much organised, without many facilities for swimming and sunbathing (sunbeds, umbrellas, etc), the beach offers some accommodation facilities in studios and rooms to let and excellent food in the fish taverns, where you will find fresh fish and sea food.
Apart from swimming and relaxing at the beach, the area is very good for sightseeing. Archaeological survey has shown that the actual scenic village with the cute small, whitewashed houses has been built on the place of the ancient homonymous Minoan city. According to tradition, Minoan people from this area had settled in Asia Minor in the mid-2 nd millennium b.C., and established the famous city of Miletos, which flourished for a long time in the Archaic and Classical periods. Several burials of the Late Minoan period have been found here.
And, if one day the wind does not allow you to swim, don’t get upset; it is for good! Leave the beach and drive from the beach to the village of Milatos and then to Anoghia, Latsida, Voulismeni, Vrahassi and back to Milatos; it is “the hidden Lassithi”, off the tourist destinations. You will enjoy a wonderful natural environment and come across places and people, not much affected by the invasion of mass tourism.
