A quiet little seaside village backed by green hills and olive groves, Tavronitis is less even developed than its neighbours Maleme and Kolimbari. A Tavronitis holiday is for families and couples looking for peace and calm.
Tavronitis is small and tourists and locals mix happily in its butchers, bakers, bank and mini-markets. You will never have to fight for space on the beach here. Just hire your sunbed from one of the handful of laid back beach tavernas and settle down to soak up the sun before cooling off deliciously in the glimmering blue waters.
Ready for some shade? No problem, there is plenty at the back of the beach beneath the tamarisk trees.
As evening falls why not sip a drink watching the sun sink into the sea, before getting a good night’s sleep undisturbed by revellers. They are all in Platanias – easily accessible if you do fancy some party action.
