Good for snorkeling
This is the best beach for snorkeling that I’ve come across in Crete. It is pebbly, so water is very clear. Entering the water on the far left side, you will come across some corals. Then if you swim to the left by the cliffs, you will pass by what seems to be an underwater cave, and if you continue swimming ~400 m you will get to something that looks like an abandoned quarry that has some underwater wreckage. The beach is very uncrowded and has some natural shade.

Away from crowded famous places in the beautiful and wild Spatha peninsula
The Spatha peninsula is largely inhabited and if you wanna escape from the crowd and mess of the most renowed places you’ll find lonely, although less equipped, places.
Ravdoucha is a tiny village on the top of a hill, from where a steep and narrow dead-end road goes down to the beaches. A smaller one is a mix of rocks and terrain, here and there somehow muddy, with a few free sun beds and umbrellas and a shower, facing a small bay of crystal water protected by a pier. A second one is totally rocky and, besides a natural pool, faces a wider front of more open sea. A small church in the rock lays on the road between the two beaches. The uphill land to the extreme tip of the peninsula and the Monastery of Ioanni Gkionas and Agios Pavlos Monastery and beach is of breathtaking wilderness and beauty.
