Fodele
Fodele

27km northeast of the centre of Heraklion, Fodele beach is 3km from the settlement sharing the same name, where it is believed that the famous painter Dominikos Theotokopoulos, also known as El Greco, was born.

The sandy beach surrounded by cape Stavros and the Castello hill, starts where the estuary of river Pantomantris or Fodelianos is. At the west part of the coast you will find beach umbrellas, chaise longues, cafes and water sports facilities. If you are after something more quiet, opt for the eastern end.
