We took a drive from Elounda where we are staying to see something different and what we got was just what we wanted... well worth the effort.
Forrest of palm trees unique to the area, a great Beach with beach club and really cool snorkeling....More
If you want to see a real palm forest and swim in real clean waters, you should try with place. Tip: Just behind the sunbeds there are palms and enough shadow to relax and have your siesta. If you are enough adventurous, we can visit...More

The beach is amazing. The palm trees are all over the beach. The water was very cold but it was worth it. The parking and also the bars were very cheap. The only problem was long distance from the hotel (we stayed in Gouves) and...More
The beach is very special. A palm grove reaches almost to the shore. Nice cafe-restaurant adjacent to the beach. At the entrance we paid a reasonable amount for the parking and cleanliness of the beach. But on the chairs we had to pay a really...More
