Absolutely worth the drive!
This is a really nice relaxed small town. Park your car somewhere, go to the beach for couple of hours, get some fresh seafood from a restaurant and enjoy. The scenery is beautiful and the place is not packed with people like some other parts of Crete are.
Drive here can take quite a while because the road goes over the mountains and is quite narrow and winding from time to time. However the views are stunning.
