Frangokastello Village and beaches
Frangokastello is a quiet and unspoiled area set beside the sea on the fringe of a small plain of olive groves and herb scented scrub. You will find some of the best sandy beaches in Crete here, and especially little children love the shallow sea of the castle beach close by. Adults don’t have to look far for their own patch of heavenly secluded beach, there are miles of coves to choose from. The water is crystal clear and there are excellent areas for snorkeling along the coast. Most of the beaches are fairly secluded, you will only find more “crowded” beaches in the surrounding area of the castle. There are small tavernas and cafes along the coast and some supermarkets. But there is no actual village here, a small boat harbour is located in the centre of Frangokastello.
