The West Coast Beaches

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.

The beach here is exceptionally beautiful. In effect it is a number of large sandy stretches that together run on for 3 km.

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.
