Discover The north coast Greece

To the far east of the island, the sandy beach of Vaï, surrounded by a natural palm grove, is really magical when not overrun by tourists. In the west, a few miles away from Chania, the large sandy beach of Haghia Marina, clean and shady, is ideal for relaxation. However, Rethymno's beach is actually very dangerous when the wind picks up. The waves are impressive, and the current is violent. You should avoid the beach of Heraklion which is neither clean nor peaceful due to the proximity of the airport.

    If its unspoilt landscapes you're after, head for either the east or the west coast. What you'll find up here is the gorgeous Balos Lagoon.
