Nice beach, fresh. Good for children and families. Nice beach restaurants and cafes. For adults, recommend Rethymnon instead.

The sand is fine, the beach remains shallow way out. Wonderful for kids, grown ups and elderly. 3rd time in a row here and we've walked all the beaches west of Chania.

Great sandy beach, loads of bars and places to eat as you walk up (most offer free loungers and an umbrella if you get food or drinks at their bar) The beach stretches quite a while, there's also water sports available like jet ski's etc.

Hi, Maybe I can answer on some of your questions. Yes, it hard to find parking in many parts of central Chania. There is some water sports in Agia Marina, the beach is long and many different places to rent water sports... More
