South and west of Cape Gramvousa, the westernmost promontory in the Chania Prefecture, you will meet with a series of really lovely beaches and secluded bays. The beach at Falasarna stands out, with its pale sands that run on and on, and its turquoise waters.
Further south still, on the road to enchanted Elafonisi, are a string of isolated and sheltered coves, each with crystal-clear water.
This is a quiet, secluded beach, with sand and scattered rocks, with deep clear waters that are ideal for those looking to relax and get away from it all, but also for snorkeling enthusiasts.
At a distance of 60 km from Chania and 32 km from Kastelli Kissamos is located the beach of Sfinari. This beach is the perfect choice for those keen on diving, because of its magnificent sea-bed. It is quiet otherwise, a place in whose blue waters you may bathe. It has both sand and pebbles – and sufficient tamarisks around and about to allow you to take your rest in their shadows.
This, also known as Afratolakkoi, is quiet and remote enough that is around 69 km from Chania and 30 km from Kastelli Kissamos. It is pebbly, with deep and clear water, and used chiefly by the locals. It is not organized and so lacks infrastructure – though some tavernas and rent rooms exist nearby.
Keramoti Beach is a quiet, long beach, located 71 km from Chania and 27 km from the magnificent Elafonisi. A quiet but long beach, close to the village of the same name, but still undeveloped. Be sure to take all you require for your comfort with you when you visit.
