The closest beach to to the town of Chania. Good value sun beds and umbrella for €5 for two beds and umbrella. Range of restaurants and cafes close by. Beach isn’t the cleanest but good if you just want a beach within walking distance.

To get to the beach in Nea Chora just walk along water front from the harbour starting from the Nautical Museum side and just follow the water front and takes 10 mins. Nice part of Chania and great tavernas. The bar and... More
