A great beach only 10 minutes walk from our hotel. We went twice, the first time there were lots of spare parasols and sun loungers to rent, the second time they were all taken but some staff brought us an extra two so that we could get some shade. There is good wifi and the cafe has a good selection.... More

Umbrellas mats, nearby cafes, bus service, and crystal inviting water make a lovely day at the beach, Greek Style. We were told it gets crowded in summer, but it was deserted on a gusty November weekday.

Iguana Beach is one of the nicer beaches you will find in Chania. It is located in a small bay, west of the city centre. The beach was clean and the water quality was okay when we came here.

This beach is at the end of Agii Apostolic beach and well worth a visit. It appeared to have everything needed including sun umbrellas, loos, cafe, boat rentals, book exchange and things for the children to do. In a lovely cove setting.

At first I was taken aback by too many colourful umbrellas and lobsters Europeans however it's a great place to chill. Beware of the toilets - they are holes in the ground. However I guess you could go to the restaurant nearby. Excellent water and views
