To make the choice a little easier which beach is worth a visit...I made a list of the most beautiful beaches in the wonderful prefecture of Rethymnon. You should definitely check them out while on Summer Vacation in Crete ... 


Bali Beach RethymnonYes… you read it right, Bali at our own Crete and it is at least as beautiful as the island in Indonesia. The Bali bay consists of four sand and pebbles beaches. It is situated only 30 kilometres from Rethymnno town and has plenty of facilities. There are several beach bars, taverns with real Greek and International delights in the sea front and sun beds, umbrellas and other stuff to buy.

Pirates’ Fjord

Pirates Fjord RethymnonLong time ago pirates used to take refuge inside this sheltered bay and now it’s the place to go snorkelling and get tanned. The beach is only 2 meters width, but it deepens suddenly and changes to a deep rocky soil. Make sure that you wear water shoes. You can reach the beach by crossing the hotel or a boat from Plakias. It worth the effort.
