Kokkinos Pyrgos beach, Heraklion Crete

This long sandy beach is found just near to the small fishboats' port with the same name. It is situated some 11 far from Agia Galini.The beach is open to the South and affected by the strong winds blowing in the area.

Not much organised, the beach is popular to the locals and only few tourists visit it. There is more people at the western end of the beach, that near the port, whereas the eastern part is less frequented and usually quiet.
