Summer is coming! These carefree days of the sun and the sea are coming, that we are all waiting for. In this text you will find the guide to the best beaches of Crete and you will look forward to visiting them.

1. Elafonisi

Hidden endless beach southwest of Crete. It may take more than an hour from the city center to get there but you will definitely be rewarded by the unique beauty of the beach. Its raw beauty is undeniable, with turquoise waters and pink-pastel sand a natural phenomenon caused by thousands of shells that wash away over time and color the white sands. Its shallow waters are ideal for families.

2. Falasarna

The short, winding drive down to Falasarna can be a little uninspiring with sea views blocked by greenhouses plonked across the olive groves. One of the best beaches in Crete with plenty of space to spread your towel, wonderful clear waters and endless views. Falasarna is located west of Crete and on windy days there will definitely be waves that may not be ideal for families but for windsurfers they are, for sure !!! A unique element of the beach is also the famous sunsets, when the burning orange melts slowly in this incredible sea.

3. Preveli

Where the delta of the river Megalopotamos and the Libyan Sea meet, there is a tropical beach called Preveli. Access to the beach requires a knee-pounding climb down a steep path, but waiting at the bottom are bone-white sands and clear waters for snorkelling. Apart from a tavern in the summer near the car park, - there is not much around - its remoteness is one of its charms.

4. Balos

You may know the name Balos from many travel brochures in Crete, inviting visitors with the promise of white lily sand, vibrant turquoise waters and a wonderfully wild and remote environment on the Gramvousa peninsula. And this is absolutely true. Backed by hills, the beach and lagoon are not easily accessible, but this does not prevent visitors from crossing a dirt road to get there, or day travelers boarding a boat to access from Kastelli. Get ready for a picnic because there is nowhere to buy food or drink.

5. Matala

A village that was discovered by hippies back in the 1960s, the legendary Matala, is no longer a best-kept secret. So it’s best visited slightly out of season. Mythology has it that this was the spot where Zeus swam ashore under the guise of a bull with Europa on his back. The gently rippling waters of the Messara Bay are flanked by mysterious caves. Explore this incredible landscape before grabbing a meal at one of the restaurants overlooking the water.

6. Vaï

In the Lasithi province, Crete’s easternmost region, lies a little slice of the Caribbean. The calm, shimmering water of the beach at Vaï is backed by a large grove of swaying Cretan date palm trees. So impressive!!!

7. Seitan Limania

In a hidden corner on the northeastern side of the peninsula of the Cape of Crete, a short drive from Chania, this place is worth the steep downhill route to reach. It’s tiny, there is nothing else there, but one reason why the visitors make the trip: take a look at this narrow strip of turquoise water shown in the photo. Stuck between rising cliffs makes it a beach you will not forget. You can just enjoy the view from the top of the hill or wander the rocky path to take a dip. 


Summer!!! Holidays, sun, sea, rest ... Laughter and whispers even in the most remote corners of every neighborhood and every beach.

The day will start by drinking your coffee in the charming beaches overlooking the endless blue of the sea and sky..Next you will find yourself walking in the picturesque square of Platanias where you will get lost in the traditions of the area. Golden sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and dreamy sunsets.
