Beautiful old harbour area , spoilt by the restaurants that won’t leave you alone when trying to walk around. Tip - eat at the ones that don’t constantly bother you eg Zefyros , and be careful as to how much you will pay for fish...More

small old harbour but given over to the harbour side restaurant businesses who are obviously after your custom. Sunset is behind the restaurants so no spectacular views. Get up early or stay on the harbour wall for the view (then eat somewhere else)

We went out onto the harbour wall which was lovely. The high path is a little narrow and uneven, but the lower walk was fine, Sat and drank in the view.

We went here 3 times in one week. A very picturesque harbour, not too big but very delightful. Seen by day and by night both were excellent. Great restaurants along the harbour.

The general design is similar to Chania, but much smaller and more romantic. The protective quai is accessible - but the lighthouse is locked. If you want to extend the enjoyment by having lunch or dinner, go straight to Zefyros family fish taverna (if they...More

Well manicured palm trees in a crescent shape separate the harbor and the buildings. However the harbour has in addition to pleasure craft and fishing boats construction and ugly freighters. The restaurants and shops lining the harbor are not interesting. On the other hand it...More
