  Frangokastelo Beach
by Jmill42

One of the quiter beaches on Crete that I found was at the Frangokastelo. Directly in front of the castle lies its beach. It is a long strip of good, white sand, and that has a small restaurant/bar for refreshments. Across the street from the castle is a small grocery and "essential needs" shop. Whats great about the beach is that shallow water extends for a great distance from the shore, making the water seem crystal clear as far as you can see. At the end is a pretty sharp rock formation, so be careful of your feet.

Address: Prefecture of Rethymnon
Directions: About 11 kms east of the Chora Sfakion
