More about Porto Rethymno

Rethymnon Beach

by PhilC2

One of the highlights of Rethymnon was its vast expanse of beach, which sprawls for about 12km from the new harbour westwards. It spreads a good 100 metres or so from the road, giving ample room for everyone. Be careful though, the sand is very hot and wooden boards are provided to walk along.
There are various sections of sun loungers to choose from and we always chose a section with white and burgundy stripe parasols opposite the Porto Rethymno hotel. The loungers cost about 3 Euros each a day and the guy who runs it is very friendly and can get you food or drink from the seafront cafe, although we preferred to stock up at a convenience store just down the road on the front (1 Euro baguettes and bottles of water with crisps- Kept us happy until the doughnut lady came round!).
Generally the water was dead calm but we did experience a couple of days where the lifeguards had hoisted a red flag and on occasions through out those days, we were not allowed in the sea. Strangely, Rethymnon endured very high waves and this coupled with a strong underwater current means that a weak swimmer could encounter difficulties in these conditions. There was a couple of occasions where I did have to battle hard against being swept out. However, as stated most days there was hardly a ripple. Anyway, it was great fun for the men jumping waves, me included, and it felt like man’s work. Finally I had something in my life to aim for!
