Head to the capital
If you can tear yourself away from the serenity of Kalamaki, why not explore Chania Town, which is only a ten-minute drive away? Check out the interesting mix of old and new by wandering the quaint harbour and admiring the medieval buildings. Top it all off with an al fresco feast at one of the waterfront restaurants.
When it comes to beaches, Greece is up there with having some of the best. And in this part of Crete, it’s no different! The long, sand-and-shingle stretch of Kalamaki Beach is right on your doorstep and a sunbathing setting sent from heaven. It rarely gets busy and there’s a sprinkling of traditional tavernas on hand for drinks and snacks.
