The beach in Gerani Chania
One-to-two minutes' walk from your accommodation is the sandy beach that never gets crowded. You can take long walks along the clean, quiet beach in either direction for up to 2km. Or just watch stunning sunsets over the sea, sipping locally produced wine and raki from our beach-side bar.
It is reassuring to know when you are swimming or sun-bathing here that health and hygiene tests show this is one of the most unpolluted parts of all the Mediterranean coasts. It is such a quiet stretch of beach that the Turtle Protection Society of Greece monitors the activity of turtles - thought to swim from as far away as the Asia-Pacific oceans - that swim ashore by night and lay their eggs on these beaches from July-September.
