The beach Chrissi Akti is located 2.5 km West of the city of Chania. Chrissi Akti means ‘Golden Beach’ in Greek and that is exactly what it is. A long golden color sandy beach with a very warm shallow sea that is calm on all summer days. This beach is organized with sun-beds and umbrellas, a life guard station, showers, cafes and water-sports. It is easy to park nearby the beach or walk straight from your hotel in the area. There is plenty of accommodation at Chryssi Akti, fairly quiet places and that makes them ideal for families with young children. The evenings are calm here because entertainment is located further away. From the hotels at Chrissi Akti you can walk to the beach.
