Agii Apostoli Beach

Reviewed By Susiethebaker - Newton stewart

Clean beach with crystal clear water. Wonderful in late afternoon when the sun hits the far corner of the sand and young children dash about, building sand Castles and playing in the shallows.
No lifeguard station on this beach and although it seems very safe, once out in deep water, the headlands and the island opposite Agia Maria can cause undertow and rips. Be careful.
As with many Beaches in Chania region these days, there are too many sun beds and several expensive hotels whose sunbeds jut close to the waters edge and their advertisements imply private beach. Not so.
We joined the local people at the end of the beach in the soft sand, the most sheltered and the best bit.
Just behind is Iguana beach and there are several lovely bays along this stretch within minutes walk eastwards.

Greek National Football Museum

A unique Museum, the biggest one for a National Football Team, the Greek National Football Team, which was European Champions in 2004, located in the Old City of Chania and has over 1000 exhibits, balls from World Cup and Euro games, official shirts, photos and thw whole history of Greek football.

The owner clearly has a love for football and his collection of memorabilia, for which he has needed to extended the premises so he can display it all properly. After learning I am a Liverpool fan, he produced a reds shirt of his own for me to try on and photograph. There was something magical about Greece winning the Euro's in 2004 and this is captured in this museum. There is even some grass from the oitch! No entrance fee but there is donation box which I was very happy to contribute to.

Jeep Safari

Reviewed By Neil M - Dunblane, United Kingdom

Despite being dubious about a jeep safari after a bumpy, dusty, contact lens destroying on in Bulgaria, this was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Crete - largely down to the knowledge and humour of driver / guide Nikos! He was exceptional! The tour is in relative comfort of Landrover Defenders taking you high into the Mountains of Crete on some downright dodgy tracks you couldn't attempt yourself!
We saw the sides of Crete away from the tourist trails, saw mountain top vultures, visited the Cave Of Zeus, tried locally made raki, tried more, bought some of said raki, fed goats, tried locally produced mountain goat cheese, bought cheese, had an awesome barbeque lunch with locally produced wine...
All in all a "must do" trip - tell Nikos & Simon we said hi!

Chrissi Akti Beach

Reviewed By LaSimplicite - Canton of Neuchatel, Switzerland

This is the largest and easternmost beach from the gulfs of Agioi Apostoloi. It has five umbrella sets, a few bars (with fresh drinks, the ubiquitary freddo and salads and sandwiches). It is the least expensive from the 4 Beaches (6 euros an umbrella and 2 sun beds) but the water is almost always agitated with the northern winds, making it ideal for surfers. And they were many today, Surfing through the few swimmers who bravely confronted the waves today. It is also a very large beach, ideal for families with children. If you want to relax, maybe this is not the first choice as people play football or other beach sports just near the umbrellas.

Fresh Feet Fish Spa

Reviewed By Ana C - Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

The waxing services are good and they are open on Sundays. It is better to book as they tend to be very busy. The manicure and pedicure is very good! The Fish Spa is also very good, my children really enjoyed the experience!

Souda Bay War Cemetery

Suda Bay War Cemetery is located approximately 5 km east from the centre of Chania (Xania). There are now 1,500 Commonwealth servicemen of the Second World War buried or commemorated in the cemetery. 776 of the burials are unidentified but special memorials commemorate a number of casualties believed to be buried among them. The cemetery also contains 19 First World War burials brought in from Suda Bay Consular Cemetery, 1 being unidentified. There are also 7 burials of other nationalities and 37 non-war burials.

Reviewed By David A - Boston, United Kingdom

This cemetery is a noble tribute to those who died in the Chania area mainly during World War II. Beautifully green and situated overlooking one of the largest natural harbours in the world. It is worth Reading the back story of the massive fight to retain the airport at Maleme. I had no idea that many of those buried here are from Australia and in particular from New Zealand. The only problem is getting here without a car. I travelled by bus from Chania and then walked, but it is a busy road and there is no footpath so take care. You won’t forget this place.

The sand is fine, the beach remains shallow way out. Wonderful for kids, grown ups and elderly. 3rd time in a row here and we've walked all the Beaches west of Chania.

Iguana Beach

Iguana beach is located a few kilometres away from the city of Chania. You can come here with taxi or bus. The bus stop is located at the "1866 square" and the ticket costs around 1 euro (if you buy the ticket from inside the bus it will be more expessive).

Reviewed By zSne - Belgrade, Serbia

Good beach, but there are a lot of fishes which will bite you and you can't relax in the water for a second. You have to go deeper and swim fast all the time. There is other beach near, where you can see even more fishes and none of them will bite you.

Wow. Another Venice. But this one is so much more relaxed. Lovely and elegant. Mighty fine. A fairly long walk from end to end and can be a crowd scene but still worthwhile

Chania Venetian Lighthouse

Reviewed By taftdev - Randolph Center, Vermont

Take the time to walk out to lighthouse. The harbor and city take on a whole new look. When the light is behind you the city just seems to glow.
