Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Loved this beach, very clean and few taverns that you can sit at to get some rest from the sun with good food and beer. We rented sunbeds at in the middle of the beach, the owners took such a good care of the location, everything clean and everything thought through. Our son could borrow things to the beach or in the ocean so no need to buy or bring stuff over. Waves are usually very good and everyone can find a wave the fits them. Bus station right at the corner!.

Nice long beach with a great view of the sea.
You don’t need to buy a sunbed and an umbrella because in the right corner of the beach are some Big trees which throw enough shadow.
Also there are sweetwater showers and toilets and a small beach club.
Directly at the beach is a bus stop. The busses drive every 15 minutes from there to Chania.
But the water quality is not that good, because there are many seaweed fields on the waterside. In addition, you can find more trash on the sandy beach.
Nevertheless, the beach can be recommended for a spontaneous cooling. However, it is nothing better. You need to know .

I love Chrissy Akti. Clean little beach, close to Chania. Here you Will find 3 small tavernas also. Ippocampus is open alll year around and is so good, especcially wintertime. It is like second home.
Summertime It’s very close to Anais restaurang,It’s a really good one.
If you want to rent a car you have Rolling cars 100 m from beach.
Chrissi Akti is my Favourite.....

The far western end is where we came on several days. Good bathing when the sea is calm, sandy under foot and shallow for a long way out, good for the chidren and good sand for castle building, we watched one guy make a brilliant sculpture of a turtle to entertain his kids. When the wind blows and the waves get up it's surfer's paradise. There are boards for hire and you can have lessons.
Sun beds and shades at 6 Euros a set was a good price for the area. A decent beach bar at the rear will provide your drink and snack needs but the filthy and disgusting squat toilets should only be contemplated in an emergency.
The sand is fine and golden but depressingly tainted with plastic polution, how did it get its Blue flag one wonders?. There is a lifeguard station, we watched them go into action three times one day to rescue unwary swimmers in the rough sea.
Catch the number 21 Bus from Chania for the short ride out to this beach, sevice every 20 minutes.

This beach is great, not too crowded and suitable for all ages.
Iff too much wind/waves I will recommend to go as far west (to the left when facing the water) as possible, as the water is calm here.
Several cafés/beach bars with drinks, simple meals, ice cream etc.

The toilets didn't work, and I am not sure when/if they are cleaned...

Still my favourite beach in Agii Apostoli. Convenient beach cafe. Worth a bus ride if you don't fancy walking from further up the beach.

Not as much tree shade as agioi apostoli next door so either go after 3 when the sun is less intense but the sea is still warm or hire sunbeds.
View is of chania but not too unpleasant as they are not uniform high rises.
West side by rocks brilliant for snorkelling.
Lots of locals there too which was lovely.
Nice atmosphere

This beach was great. We visited here twice. On the first visit we rented sunbeds from the leftmost set of chairs and the next time from the one next to that. Both cost 6€, which was less than the sunbeds further to the right, and both accepted credit cards. The leftmost part of the beach is best for children because there's less waves and a fenced area for kids to swim in safely. The water was clear and the beach was clean.

This is one of my favourite beaches of Chania prefecture! It's only 15 minutes by bus and less by car to the Old Town and yet far enough away to enjoy solitude.. but it has a homey vibe at the little cafe at the top of it before you head down to the sand. Lovely snacks at the cafe, cheap and good food and coffee and very friendly local-type place.. hardly any tourists seem to come to this beach so it's really great and peaceful even with organised sunbeds and umbrellas etc.. The fine sand and clear water and calm sea make it just fabulous.. meets all of your relaxation needs yet you still have everything at your fingertips if you need it.

In my opinion it is the best beach in the area. Water is clean and nice. A bit crowded but I have seen worse.

Great experience overall.
