Telonio beach in Kissamos, Western Crete

A shopping excursion and the coincidental parking on a side road led us to Telonio beach in Kissamos (Kastelli). It is a mix of sand and pebbles and not very pretty to look at in some places, but it has a few advantages over other beaches in the area:

No big crowds
The narrow beach is not exactly looking like paradise (can’t beat the view though), but it is a great place if you want to avoid the madness at the more popular beaches.

Easy parking
Ample parking can be found right at the beach. You should have no problem finding a spot, dip into the water and be on the road again or grab a bite to eat nearby.

Close proximity to restaurants and cafes
The seafront promenade of Kissamos with restaurants, tavernas, cafes and gift shops connects to the beach.
