Seitan Limania is an hidden small paradise beach, nestled in a canyon leading out to the sea.

It is not too far from Chania town, so its popularity is increasing (also among the goats ) and then expect it to be pretty crowded too.

This tiny cave is stunning and deserves 5 stars but the access is not easy at all and requires to be brave and fit/strong.

In fact, the walking path to the beach is not easy at all: it would be helpful if you wear sneakers. For the same reason, I would not recommended it to families with children and, at the same time, I also suggest not to carry too many stuff (despite the fact that there is nothing close to the beach) as you need your hands to be free.

This is a beautiful beach and worth the visit. But beware because this is not for the faint of heart!! Once you start going down the road, you can’t turn around until you get to the bottom. The road is steep, narrow and has no fence along the edges. My mom nearly had a heart attack... Getting up was also very hard for cars with small engines (we almost didn’t make it). As long as you are a competent driver and are ready for what’s to come it’s definitely worth the trouble!!

Beautiful place, but the descent towards the beach is hazardous and steep. We heard a 17year old boy died because he went down too quickly. At least you need adequate shoes.
You can also take beautiful pictures from above. The water is blue green white.

Incredible place! The colour of the water is just like nowhere else. The way down by car is dangerous and super scary so be aware!

Just amazing. I think the best beach i've ever seen.... the last driving 1000 - 800m its a little bit scary. Then you park your car and you have to climp down the hill. But its worthy 100%. The beach its amazing like nowhere else.
