The West Crete holidays guide
Location of Frangokastello
Frangokastello aerial view


Frangokastello is located along the coast on an arid plain with a beautiful mountain background.

 Getting there

A good but winding road takes you over the mountains from the North coast. Public transport is very limited.


Quiet place but lacking in atmosphere. Frangokastello didn't exist until a few years ago (apart from the castle and the ruins of a monastery) and all the buildings are new.


Plenty of rooms, studios and apartments. Find accommodation in Frsngokastello


A few restaurants, some of them excellent.


Three mini markets cater to everyday needs.




Superb sandy beaches. The main beach next to the castle can get a little crowded but there are some other beautiful and quiet sandy beaches within walking distance. Because of its extremely shallow water the main beach is the best anywhere in West Crete if you have small children.
