Damnoni is located 35km south of Rethymnon and 5km east of Plakias. It is a popular tourist resort, very well-developed and organized. The beach that stretches in front of the resort is a long bay with beautiful turquoise waters and coarse whitish sand. Here you will find all the services of a well-organized beach such as umbrellas, snack bars, showers, changing rooms, water sports, a scuba diving centre, great hotels, restaurants, one horse riding centre etc.
The west end of the beach, the most organized part, has a small river with water almost all year round. The east end of the beach is quieter and is linked with the adjacent beaches of Ammoudakii via a short dirt road. Moreover, beyond the west end of the beach, there are several small coves with sand and rocks, where you can get isolated. These are located just next to the small harbour of the area.
