Top 5 Beaches in Rethymno

Find out the best beaches in Rethymno! Some of which you might not even heard of!

1. Preveli Beach (or Finikas)

Preveli has taken its name from the monastery located 2 km away and it is one of the highlights of Crete! The walk down to the beach is not that easy (not that difficult either) however it offers amazing views of the Libyan sea. The beach itself is something else. Lovely waters and earie rocks, and a scenic palm forest should convince you this is the best beach in Rethymno!Preveli Beach Rethymno Crete

2. Kalypso Beach

Kalipso is probably nothing like any other beach you have experienced in Crete. It is not your traditional beach as it has no sand, but sand is overrated! Kalipso is a beach resort build on steep rocks with marvelous green/blue waters that are perfect for scuba diving. Truly a unique experience not to be missed!Kalypso Beach Rethymno Crete - allincrete.com

3. Klisidi Beach

Klisisdi beach is located on the southern part of Rethymno and resembles Seitan Limania in Chania. It is a private beach with turquoise waters that in contrast with Seitan Limania is not as busy. It is occupied sometimes by nudists, just to give you a heads up!

4. Bali Beach

Bali doesn’t have a single beach, it has four different ones. Livadi, Karavostasi, Bali and Varkotopos beach. However they have included as one as they are of very similar quality, clean, organised with umbrellas and sunbeds and facilities. Bali also offers plenty of waters sport activities to suit all!Bali Rethymno Crete

5. Ammoudi Beach

Ammoudi is another beach located on the south of Crete between Plakias and Preveli. It is a popular beach however thankfully not too popular that combines a leangthy beach and lovely green/blue waters. It is organised with umbrellas and sunbeds and there is taverna close by, but that is all the facilities you should expect!Ammoudi Beach Rethymno Crete
