There is a good sandy beach, 600 yds long, with clear waters; the best swimming is close to the sheltered harbour. For shopping the central street provides all the basics, such as a chemist, post office, bank, laundry, a couple of supermarkets, clothes, jewellery and souvenir shops; all fairly low-key. Daytime activities consist of mainly beach, windsurfing and walks. The nightlife offers a dozen or so local tavernas with pleasant street terraces, plus a few lively bars in the side streets. For food the tavernas offer a good range of local Cretan dishes, plus fresh seafood and a modest selection of international dishes; the local hotel offers more sophisticated dining beside the attractive river.
