This beach is one of our favorites in Crete. It is small and not to crowed. The water is very clear and the taverna close by service with food and drinks. The beach is very clean. 6EUR for double bed and parasol.

Generally speaking, this side of beach is not as busy as the other side of the island. So you can really enjoy the beach without disturbing noise and traffic.

Nice pebblestone beach, but the water gets deep fast. Nice for snorkeling, by the look of it. Umbrella + 2 sunbeds was €6 and the food at the Taverna Galinia was tasty with huge portions. Nothing to complain about, just not as nice as other...More

This is a long, sandy beach with a few small pebbles as you enter. Depending on the current, sometimes the waves create a little "step" as you enter, but we saw people of all ages handling it without problems. If you swim a little further...More

We go to Achlia beach at least once every time we go to Crete. It is in a sheltered bay so the water is always calm and warm. Snorkelling is good along both sides of the bay. There are a reasonable number of trees for...More
