Swim in Rethymno

Rethymno Beach Guide

Rethymno is one of the most traditional and unspoilt prefectures of Crete while  it has not been so developed and promoted as a touristic destination like the other three prefectures. Its northern part consists of an endless coast boasting a great number of organized and family friendly beaches like the exotic Bali beach and the vast Panormos beach. On the other hand, most of the beaches on the southern part of Rethymno are mostly secluded, tranquil and non-organized including the unique Preveli beach and the charming Agia Galini beach.

Cycladia’s Rethymno beach guide includes all the best beaches in Rethymno either on the cosmopolitan northern part or the untouched southern coast. Photo material, a detailed description and a map of Rethymno beaches can be also found in Cycladia’s Rethymno guide.
