The golden sandy beaches of Chania town

In the western area of Chania town, there are several small bays with golden, shallow-sand beaches to discover: Nea Chora, Aptera, Chrissi Akti and Agii Apostoli. The well-organised beaches are regularly certified with the Blue Flag and are also very popular with the locals. The area up to Agii Apostoli is mostly covered with small parks with pine and eucalyptus trees. The beaches can be easily reached by bus from Chania as well as on foot.
