Vai Beach reviews
The beach is easily accessible by car - there's parking 50 meters from the beach itself with a 3€ fee. The beach itself is beautiful, with a platform built on the rocks for nice landscape view.

A lot of people go here. There's a reason. For 70's children the UK Bounty advert is a draw, and a great excuse to go somewhere which is outstandingly beautiful. Palm tree forest, crystal waters, good snorkelling, well organised conveniences right on the beach. If you want solitude, try one of the other nearby beaches, but the activity is here for a reason - it has a charm of its own.
Fully equipped beach, clear waters and nice bar and restaurant. The palm trees behind are the best thing of the spot. But expect people, it’s a family beach, with lots of sand beds to book. Parking is just 3€. There’s a super beautiful viewpoint nearby.
Very beautiful sandy beach, warm water and colorful fish swimming in it. A charming place surrounded by a palm forest. There is paid parking available on site and very good coffee.
Excellent beach with palm trees. Fully orginezed. Parking is 3 euros. Sunbeds and umbrella 10 euros. One of the best beaches in Crete. My recommendations you won't regret.
Nice enough beach, but extremely "touristy". Everything costs money here, including parking. If you like though, you can rent luxury sunbeds with privacy curtains for €60/day.. alternatively walk over the top of the hill to the nudist beach.
