Beach Bar & Platform

You will find the Tsimento Beach Bar at the base of the cliff, amongst the rocky terrain of the peninsula. A magical spot, perched on a concrete platform and deck area at the edge of the sea. The crystal clear waters of this cove make it one of the most popular seaside locales in Heraklion. An ideal place to laze under the sun with a refreshing cocktail at hand.

Eat & Drink

Grab a bite to eat with the Mediterranean blue at your feet! The epitome of an authentically Greek Summer. Tsimento bar is situated one level above the concrete platform and offers a variety of light meals and beverages. Enjoy refreshing salads, sandwiches, wraps and more. Live pizza-making also takes place here on Weekends. 

Cool off with your drink of choice. There is something here for everyone: healthy smoothies, Greek-style iced coffees, chilled local beers, mouth-watering milkshakes and of course a selection of our signature cocktails. 

Renowned mixologist Stavros Vasiliadis has compiled our cocktail list. He has created delicious recipes with fresh ingredients and the finest local spirits. 

The Sea

The waters at Tsimento are typically calm and crystal-clear. This tranquil state is, in fact, a unique phenomenon for the North Coast of the island. Our resort’s platform is one of the few spots rarely affected by the Summer trade winds or ‘Meltemia’ that frequently stir the Northern shores of Crete. 

Tsimento is a swimmer’s paradise! Did you know that swimming in the Greek sea is about as safe as it gets? Shark attacks are unheard of, tides are barely perceptible throughout the entire country, and here, in particular, it is rarely wavy! In the unlikely event of severe weather conditions, our staff will raise a red flag to warn visitors that it is not safe to swim. *Please note that parents must supervise their children at all times and that a lifeguard is not on duty.
