Agioi Apostoloi beaches west of Chania

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 werde 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.

Useful information

3 protected bays await the visitor, all with fine sand and most clean sea water. There are plenty umbrellas and beach chairs, and of course canteens for a snack and frappe.

The beaches are easy to reach also by public bus either from Chania town or from Platanias.
