Too expensive in comparison to the quality, though quite tasty sandwiches. I can recommend if you are at the beach and need something quick and easy for lunch (or just a snack)

After breakfast we decided to take the bus towards the west for a change. We were advised that the bus we wanted did not have a number but that it was the big one with a ‘’bendy” middle.
We waited at the stop for just a few minutes and one came along. We walked towards the front door but it did not open. The middle door opened and a head poked out. This way in we were told by the conductor. We asked for two to Platanias. Cost was about €2.3 each. I say “about” as I proffered a €5 note but did not exactly count the few coins I put back in my pocket.
I knew that we wanted to get off at the Porta Platanias Beach Resort so watched intently out of the window. The drive was nice with lots of the road passing along or near the coast.
We were soon near our destination and I saw the Beach Resort pass by the window. Pressing the stop button, we got off at the next stop and walked back.
Once back past the very large hotel we turned left down to the beach. The road was easy to walk along and had a slightly downward slope.
We wandered around and checked out the prices of the boat trips. They were about €5 more than the one we had booked from Chania.
Now it was time for a drink. Wandering back to the road that comes down the side of the hotel we noticed a small “boardwalk” along the top of the beach. Several cafes are situated along this boardwalk. The first was closed until 11:00, which I thought a bit short sighted as the area was quite busy. However, the second was wide open with comfortable chairs in the shade facing the beach. Exactly what we were looking for. I looked at the name of this attractive establishment and was very pleased to see it was “Carpe Diem”! Seize the day, which did seem rather apt.
Jean ordered a green tea and I ordered a cafe latte from the lovely waitress. These were soon placed on the table along with a plate. On the plate were two, large, thick slices of an orange and chocolate marbled cake, which, we were told, were on the house.
The drinks were excellent as was the cake. Another thing that was excellent was the bill. A whole €5 for the lot!
We will go there again!
Peter & Jean. :o)

A bit hidden, but very nice and close to the beach. Food was excellent, the service was good. Free small ice creams come with the bill.
