Beaches Near Chania

Hi Trine,

Yes there are lots of beaches in walking distance of Chania Town and easily accessible by taxi or local bus. There are beaches everywhere, so just take your pick, east or west there are lovely sandy beaches. There are busy beaches with bars and cafes and music and tavernas or quieter beaches. There are active beaches with sports or other ones for just lounging around.

Specifically you could stay at Nea Chora, Agii Apostoli, Agia Marina or Maleme Beaches just to the west of Chania or try Stavros Beach to the east (where the movie Zorba was filmed).
