Well-organized, sandy and ideal for the summer, Karteros Municipal Beach is just a 10-minute drive from the city centre. It is also linked to the city centre by a daily regular bus service (bus to "AMNISSOS", departing from "ASTORIA"). The beach features a permanent lifeguard, clean and functional facilities for all (sunbeds, umbrellas, changing rooms, showers, WC), a beach volleyball court and a racket court. It also provides a free parking area and free access to pets. The beach café serves coffee, drinks & snacks, as well as delicious meals. This year, in collaboration with Heraklion Municipality, a ramp with a special seat for people with impaired mobility will be added. The beach is available for children's parties and events.
