Beaches, restaurants near cruise ship dock

We will be arriving in Chania on Celebrity's Silhouette Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014 at 7 am. I think it docks at Souda. Does anyone know for sure? We'd like to go to a beach, get lunch & get back to the ship by 3 pm. Is Iguana Beach in Agi Apostoli a good idea? Bus or cab? If cab, should we email Kosta, the cab driver who has posted on this forum? Are there better beaches? How about Taverna Kavouras or Alatopetra for restaurants? Much thanks.

I would get a taxi to Nea chora beach (the town beach). You can have a swim there and lunch in one of the excellent fish restaurants.Then take a walk along the coast to the beautiful old town, walk up to the taxi rank and go back to Souda.You don't have to book, there are plenty of taxis in town.

Three options for beaches, one is above or Agii Apostoli area, the other two are Kalives beach (to the east) or Kalathas/Marathi beach to the north. All have restaurants nearby. Best transport is taxi, prices have little difference, Kalives is the closest, Agii Apostoli and Marathi the farthest. Nice restaurants in Agii Apostoli is Pergola in chania town plenty.
