We visited this beach on our way back from Elafonisi. The water is clear and the waves are big but safe. We had a wonderful time.

29th of October and the water is still warm. One of our favorite beach in Crete, it’s best when it’s not to windy. Clear blue water and the pink sand it’s a beautiful combination.
