If you ever looking for quite place not filled with tourist Sfinari is the place to go. Beach is stony but perfect for chill and relax.

Beautiful landscape but we took the winding narrow and mountainous road where our ears started popping and restaurant with fish very expensive and not fresh....wouldn't go again.

Great taverns with a great view But sadly many big stones in the water and only a small part with sand on the beach... Bathing in swallow water is possible, but swimming is dangerous here

It's not the smartest bay on Crete and certainly not the easiest access but we'll worth the effort. Fresh fish caught by the restauranteurs father is something not often encountered. A charming place to relax swim and enjoy the sun.

The beach and water are very clean. But it is not a sand beach but stones. Very nice place for relax and sundown

This is quite an exposed bay with a mixture of pebbles and sand. There are sunbeds for customers of the tavern. The drop into the sea is quite steep so I wouldn't recommend for people with young children.

Food at Nikos is fantastic but Sfinari is for those who prefer clear waters on account of sand which is almost none, a lot of pebbles.

We have forgotten the name of the Taverna but it is the last one before the camp site. The chef looks just like Tom from Gas Monkey. We stayed there all day and it was just brilliant. Great food and cold beer with free sun...More

Hi. Not really, nothing with all the facilities provision. There are few small ones near Chania. The one worth mentioning is the pebbled beach in Paleochora but it is an hour drive from Kissamos.

Absolutely not a walking distance. If no car hire is planned than motorbike scooter have to be rented in order to get there.
