Beaches in M. Rethimno

The prefecture’s north coasts are very busy and organized. Pay a visit to Rethimno beach just outside the city, its golden sand extends over twelve kilometer, and enjoy the sea ideal for small children as it is shallow for several meters. Alternatively you can follow a very easy route on an asphalt roadway which ends up in the organized beach of Plakia.
If you prefer isolated beaches with crystal waters and untouched sceneries away from touristic development you should take the way to the south coasts of the island. In the broader area you will see the isolated beach of Ammoudaki, while if you continue towards Lefkogia you will be amazed by the beautiful beach of Ammoudi with the imposing rocks standing in the sea. If you like underwater explorations the richness of its bottom will take your breath away.
Some of the most beautiful beaches in Crete is Aghia Irini, Triopetra, Ligres and Aghios Pavlos all located in the southeastern side of Rethimno prefecture.
