About these ratings

Also known as Palm Beach (not to be confused with the less remarkable Palm Beach in Preveli), Vai Beach is popular mainly due to its stunning landscape. It is home to a large palm forest, so if you're looking to avoid renting a beach umbrella, you've come to the right place for some natural shade.

Vai is located in the far northeast corner of Crete. The best way to get there is from one of the five daily buses that depart from Sitia. The ride takes about an hour.
