Havania Beach, Katsikia

Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Create an itinerary including Havania Beach
Offering great snorkeling opportunities and many options for water sports, Havania Beach sits on a historic spot where a number of different invaders of Crete--from Ottomans to Germans--left their mark. The tranquil sandy beach boasts a cafe, where you can rent sunbeds and umbrellas, a good option given the lack of natural shade. The remnants of a small Ottoman port can still be seen while snorkeling, and the large stones on the left side of the beach are actually remains of an old fortress. Put Havania Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Katsikia holiday maker tool.

  • Small, very clean beach. Two beds and umbrella are 10 euros. There is small restaurant with fast food and drinks. Food was fresh and delicious, they bring everything on beach. Water was clean and warm. If you going on Create you should stop here it's adorable.
  • Lovely beach with good facilities - €10 for 2 sun beds and parasol - not busy in august - and some fantastic fish on view - make sure you take your snorkel !
  • Small stone beach. Good for snorkling. 10€ the sunbed+parasol.
  • Great place to hide during the storm / high waves around the coast. The waves are much smaller here than anywhere near, so, we chose this place with our 7yo daughter. Snack bar is open offering drinks, burgers and so on. Definitely will be back sometimes.
  • One of the nice beaches in Agios Nikolaos! Its well organized pebbled beach with a big parking lot. Even though beach is pebbled, inside the sea is sandy. The pebbles might have the best shapes to collect.
