Crete Area Information

Platanias, West Crete

The beach at Platanias and Agia Marina is of fine sand. This is the reason that tourism is so developed here. You will find hotels and apartments of every category, rental cars, cafés, two good discos, souvenir shops etc.

Everything is on hand, only a wide pavement is missing ("in Spain first the promenade is built and then the hotels; in Greece first the hotels and then there is no more room") There are very good taverns on the slopes of old Platanias with wonderful views of the Bay of Chania. It is 30 minutes by local bus to Chania. The rather older Hotel Geranotis Beach has a very large plot of land and a good quiet beach. The Minoa Palace is tastefully decorated and has few rooms for a 4.5- 5 star hotel. When the garden matures it will be a good address even though you have to cross the coast road. It is worth it to take wonderful bicycle tours into the interior. Quiet, asphalted country roads through plantations of lemon trees complete the picture.
