Stunning Beaches of Crete

As you might expect from such a large island, Crete has a huge coastline and some of the most heavenly beaches in Greece. Some, such as the unique pink sand beach of Elafonissi are popular with organized tour groups. Others, particularly on the south coast, are quieter especially outside of peak season.

Some of the best Crete beaches include:
  • Elafonissi Beach
  • Balos Beach
  • Voulisma Beach
  • Vai Beach (Palm Beach)
  • Falasarna
  • Preveli
  • Plakias Beach
  • Matala
  • The Beaches at Agios Nikolaos
  • Souda Beach
  • Georgioupolis
  • Ammoudara Beach
  • Frangokastello
  • Glyka Nera
