The village Rodakino is located 45km southeast of Rethymno city, on the exit of the steep canyon Rodakino that runs across the mountain Kryoneritis, a few kilometers west of Plakias resort and east of Fragokastelo. Half a kilometer to the west of Rodakino's main beach, Korakas, we meet the beach of Polirizos, surrounded by dense olive groves. To get here, you have to follow the paved road leading west from Korakas, along the shore. After passing a small sandhill and some little coves, you'll meet the small settlement Polirizos, with some rooms and taverns. In front of Polirizos, stretches a small lovely beach with fine sand and shallow, calm waters.
The beach is very suitable for children; it's slightly organized, with umbrellas and sunbeds. The seaside road stops here because in the western part of the coast rises the rocky hill Kastelos, and continues to the innerland. On the other side of the hill, Kastelos stretches the amazing long bay of Peristeres, accessed by turning left about 500m after Polirizos.
