The beach here is a predominantly rocky shoreline with some sandy bays in between. There are some water sports but other facilities limited.
Number of local food stores and souvenir shops exist, although there is more choice in Hani Kokini. For serious shopping, head to Heraklion.
The daytime can be spent on the beach or by the pool. The nightlife here offers a small selection of bars and tavernas. Gouves and Hani Kokini can satisfy more demanding revellers.
