Just 4 km west of the city Chania are the beaches used in former years primary by the locals of Chania: the sandy coves below the hill with the church Agioi Apostoloi (the Holy Apostles). During the past decade some luxury hotels were added to the 2 story apartment houses filling up the grounds of this area.
The area is considered to be of rare natural beauty and ideal for swimming and playing. On the beaches of Agioi Apostoloi there are the necessary facilities for water sports and beach volley. In summer events are performed under the huge Eukalyptus trees.
