Best place to stay close to beach?

Im going to be renting a villa, so want somewhere which would have the following:

Nice resort with a nice beach (with some water activities)

Don't care how touristy it is - just somewhere nice

Restuarants and bars not too far away

Has to be in the Chania region (ideally close to Chania)

Was thinking Agia Marina or Platania?

Can you lovely people help?

Agia Marina would be my choice, it has everything you want - except perhaps private villas??

Try Freelance Holidays. They have lots of nice villas in the Chania area.

Just a warning, villas are usually not close to the beach, and if they are, they are more expensive.

I suggest Hotel Ammos. Very nicely designed, excellent services, and you can literally walk all the way in to Chania on the beach! www.ammoshotel.com/facilities.asp?lang=en

Otherwise, go into Chania Town and check out the Casa Delfino. http://www.casadelfino.com/

Good luck and happy travels!
