Enjoy crystal water beaches in Crete.
The closest beaches to the villa is Panormos and Geropotamos beach which is 17 km far away.
In Panormo there are actually two main beaches and a few smaller ones. As the name implies, Panormos is a natural harbor with calm waters. The harbor (Limanaki) beach in front of the village is the port of the area. It is sandy and has clear waters. It is ideal for children, as it is shallow and well protected from winds with piers, where the boats tie up. It is organized with umbrellas, showers, water sports and accommodation facilities around.
The second main beach named Limni is located just 200m west of the village. Similarly to the harbor beach, it’s a sandy beach, well protected by a rocky pier. Even further to the east, there is a small cove with a pebbly beach, ideal for seclusion and snorkeling.
The small beach of Geropotamos is sandy and has crystal clear water. It is slightly organized with umbrellas and a canteen that offers refreshments, coffee, water and food supplies. Despite the easy access, it is always quiet and not crowded. However, the orientation of the shore makes it vulnerable to north winds.
There are also many choices for beaches around the villa.
Spilies Beach is a pebbly beach with crystal clear deep waters, protected by vertical cliffs. Characteristic of the cove are the beautiful cavernous rocks that protect the small beach on the west. Beyond the west and the east end of the beach, there are several sea caves and rocks with amazing formations. On the beach there are some umbrellas and beds and a small canteen.
Bali was a small fishing village, but over the years has become a charming touring village, overlooking the little fishing harbor and the sea. It is a very attractive and romantic place, combining sea and mountains. Life is easy going enjoying the sun and the clear calm sea at a number of sandy and shingly beaches. Bali offers a large choice of taverns, restaurants, little shops, diving school, bars and discos.
Bali has four beaches, organized with umbrellas and sunbeds, which are formed in sandy coves with nice greenish waters. The beaches are almost always calm, since the direction of Bali is western. They all are suitable for children and well organized. Moreover, water is cool because of the several springs that carry fresh water into the sea.
On the South coast of the island you can also discover some of Crete’s most amazing natural beaches such as “Schinaria”, “Damnoni”, “Triopetra”, “Agios Pavlos” and "Preveli". The distance to the South coast from the villa is about one hour by car and all the above beaches are located near to Plakias village where you can find shops and many taverns. Crete is a magical island filled with myth and legend, a place to relax the ideal choice for all the family.
