Amazing beach with beach bar, clear water and golden sand. The draft beer from the beach bar is served in chilled mug, which is great!!!

2 loungechairs and umbrella costs 9 euros a day, showers are available as is refreshments from a coffeeshop. A bit crowded, with lounges a bit close and since waters are shallow, it’s popular with families.

Clean beach. The sand was very comfortable to walk on and there you can rent sunbed for 3 euros. Went there sadly only once while I was staying in Chania but I really liked it. You can see the fishes in the sea easily.

Beautiful unspoilt beaches in the area. Would recommend a visit. The beaches seem to be used a lot by locals and tourism. Relaxed place

Great beach ! You can rent a sunbeds for two for just €10 or €3 after the „rush hours”. The snack bar has friendly staff, they prepare fair snacks for the price. You can get key to the toilets from the snack bar but don’t...More

This little beach is located close to Chania and can be a spot for someone who does not want to travel far from the city. Sunbeds and umbrellas are quite old, too close to one another and uncomfortable. The beach has all you can need...More
