The path to this place is a little bit difficult, but when your toes feel the sand and the sea, you will forget how you came down there. The water is amazing!!!! And if you like you can jump from the stones into the water....More

This beach is a dream!! We didn’t know what to do on our last day in Chania, so the hotel recommended this beach and it was my favorite by far! It was great for swimming, laying out, and even some cliff jumping. The canyon walls...More

What a wonderful day trip. You leave the car at the top of the hill and are immediately greeted by a magnificent view of Seitan Limania (the Devil's Bay) down below. A steep climb is not for the faint-hearted and can be a bit scary...More

The road to this beach has many sharp curves. About two km from the beach you can stop by a small church to see the view. The parking lot is quit small so many cars park on the shoulders. There is about 15 minutes walk...More

Seitan Limania is a very special, beautiful beach. The view from the top is unique. You have to climb if you want to go down from the parking, but worth it. Don’t forget to bring your shoes! It’s a bit difficult, not recommended with small...More

My dad had assured my sister and I that it was a walk with "steps to the beach". This was a blatant lie! There are 5 right on the beach, but you do need some good shoes for the walk down. I did it in...More

I would suggest Chania dor your visit. I would also suggest that you stay in town, hotel or AirBnb, and rent a car to visit all beaches around. For the beaches there are numerous sites/apps that offer detailed info on each... More

Taxi is very expensive in Chania, because gas is really expensive. Wherever you go, be prepared to pay a minimum of 20 euros. If you are thinking of renting a car - this will give you some mobility and will pay off if you... More
