Swimming Around

The longest sandy beach in Crete and the Aegean blue is quite an alternative to our hotel pools.

Rithymna beach lies on the longest sandy beach in Crete, offering spectacular views of mountain Psiloritis and the “White Mountains”, all the way down to the old town of Rethymno and its Venetian Fortress.

Swimming in the Aegean Sea is a lucrative alternative to the hotel’s choice of pools. The well-known large exotic pool (with a special childrens’area) is designed in the shape of little islands connected by small bridges.
