Maybe The Most Beautiful Beach Of Chania ,very close to the old town .A little dangerous for those who don't wear close shoes. Get SANDWICHES ,COLD WATER AND UMBRELLAS BECAUSE IS A REALLY VIRGIN place!

Close to Chania town (around 30 minutes) and airport. The road to the beach from Chania is not so bad. There are no facilities so take with you your own food, water etc. View from the top is fantastic. You will have to walk down the cliff to reach the small beach, which is not easy to do it, so...

A very different, gorgeous, small beach approximately 35 minutes from the town of Chania. Crystal clear, deep waters having all shades of blue. The last part of the road that'll take you there is steep but there is plenty of parking space and the views from there are so rewarding! And here is that the hard part starts. The path... More

Impresive view from the top! Close to the airport and town of Chania... Really nice water! The only minus is the difficulty of walking down the cliff to reach the sea..

This is a gorgeous beach on the west part of the Akrotiri peninsular. Access is down a steep track which would be very tricky for some people and young children. The road there is very steep with several hairpin bends, so you have to want to go! Once there you are rewarded by a narrow beach (gritty and stony), glorious... More

Hard to find, but worth the effort. Mostly a young peoples beach, but everybody are free to enjoy this hidden gem. Water gets deep very quickly, so not a place for very small children - our son is 11 and is a good swimmer, so he had no problems enjoying the beach/water.

Definitely hard to find. The hairpins were a little bit scary on way down but easier going up. If you park on the slope on the road put some rocks under the wheels and leave in first gear. the walk down will be a challenge for some people - i think we were the oldest on the beach (early 50s)...

Make the effort and find this amazing beach! The road is steep and you"d need to be a reasonably confident driver but it's well kept. Take drinks and road and wear trainers for the scramble down the rocky path. Truly felt like paradise! Children would struggle getting up and down so probably not the place for them.

I came across this beach while was doing holiday resarch before my Crete trip. And I am so happy that I managed to find it. The best beach on the island. You need to hike down about 200 metres a rocky path - flip flops definitely not recommended - but is is really worth it. This place is like a... More

It is as other reviewers write, not a place for common traveler. You need to descent following at least 200 meters of rocks and doing so be extremely careful, but once down, this is a paradise beach like the one at Ko Phi Phi in Thailand. The place is separarted from any wind due to the mountain and the view... More
