Iguana beach is located a few kilometres away from the city of Chania. You can come here with taxi or bus. The bus stop is located at the "1866 square" and the ticket costs around 1 euro (if you buy the ticket from inside the bus it will be more expessive).

What a beautiful beach this was before the storm so glad I saw it and swam there before I’m sure it will recover before next tourist season.

Lovely beach, well managed, clean with a little bar/cafe. Very nice and polite boys taking care of the beach. It is not expensive to rent a bed and umbrella. A bit more quiet than the next to it in front of hotels. We spent there...More

Afternoon visit to this beach. Very large and great for swimming and snorkelling. Great sunset. A little noisy because full of families.

A really nice beach, quite small with a nice view and not too crowded. Relatively cheap sunbeds (€8 for two beds and a parasol for the day). The snack bar has a nice seating area and a variety of food and drink at ok prices.

Good beach, but there are a lot of fishes which will bite you and you can't relax in the water for a second. You have to go deeper and swim fast all the time. There is other beach near, where you can see even more...More

From the airport, I would suggest a taxi. It is difficult on public transport with luggage and the local buses do not have racks or spaces for it. As Joohn suggested, the fares are reasonable. For day to day movement in and... More
