The best beach we found on the Chania peninsula - we also tried Stravos and Marathi. Sandy with clear water. There is a small island swimming distance away and the kids loved jumping from the rocks into the sea. Great taverna on the beach. Parking...More

This is a great beach for families in the Chania area. Very shallow warm water and you can swim to a small island and go snorkelling. Small waves. Not too crowded and parking is generally okay. The beach taverna is not great unfortunately, but fine...More

This beach is accessible by car, it has two or three shovers, numerous umbrellas, two or four changing cabines and most important, the beach is very clean.

Amazing beach, one of the few places in Crete that has an actual sand beach. Unfortunately there was a intense amount of litter in the water. We have to swim out 2 meters before we were free of it.

Small Greek semi-circular bay with a rocky island within swimming distance of the shore. Calm sea, very protected and gently shelving sand made entry to the water easy and very suitable for children. Small shack to the rear of the beach selling bottled beer, soft...More
