Kalathas Beach

One of the best beaches close to the center of the city!

Beaches Kalathas Beach

Kalathas is a beach located 10 km from the center of Chania in the area of Akrotiri and takes its name from the nearby village. The beach is organised with umbrellas and sunbeds and a tavern and shops are found nearby.

There is an islet across the beach that you can swim to if you like. It is very popular with the locals mainly due to its location as it is relatively close to the center of the city.

Tip: If you continue towards the far right of the beach, you will find a rather remote beach with usually hardly any people should you wish to avoid the crowded part of the beach.
