Pelekanos beach

The Pelekanos beach is located 16 km to the west of Rethymno city along with the Episkopi beach  of Rethymno prefecture .

 The sandy Pelekanos beach is surrounded by trees and lies on the northern side of Crete; therefor, it is often affected by “meltemia” and strong northern winds.

Pelekanos beach is semi-organized, but there are a bar and a tavern nearby.
