Chania : Holiday Accommodation
Strung along Crete's western coast, the resorts around Chania are relatively tranquil compared to resorts on the east coast, but enjoy stunning scenery and beautiful sandy beaches. Aghia Marina lies just a few kilometres from Chania and boasts a golden sandy beach with plentiful watersports and eateries, while Platanias has beautiful sands and a livelier atmosphere. Most peaceful is Maleme, with its cluster of tavernas and shops bordering a lovely pebble beach. Buses link all three with nearby Chania, one of Crete's oldest and most fascinating harbour towns, with its picturesque port, a variety of historical sites to discover and some wonderful Venetian architecture.
