In Rethymno you can enjoy the breathtaking sight of an endless sandy beach that meets on one side the blue see and on the other the enchanting view of the city. For all the time Winter and summer! The beach of Rethymno is 12 km long, it starts from the historical city center and extends to the Eastern part of the isle reaching Scaleta. Rethymno beach has fine-grained brilliant light brown sand.
Where you can walk barefoot and feel how soft and beautiful it is. There's nothing more rejuvenating than kicking off your shoes to sink your toes into powdery-golden, squeaky-clean beach sand.

Tourism - Travel tips
Tourism is one of the most important activities in the Mediterranean. However, while its development is based on the preservation and promotion of historical cities and sites, it sometimes results in their destruction, through uncontrollable construction. For this reason, the Municipality of Rethymno attempts to design and promote alternative development plans with respect to the local historical heritage and natural environment. This effort is based on a ‘CIVILIZATION-ENVIRONMENT-TOURISM' model and promotes sustainable development plans in the city of Rethymno.
