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 water and opportunities for jumping in off rocks. Obviously a local spot rather than touristy. There are no facilities at all so take your own food and water and something to shade you once there.

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) (not sand but shingle and pebbles) so that tells you the walk down makes it inaccessible to some. Sea looked great and people diving in off the cliffs. Trendy place for the local young people to meet up with their friends.

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.
