The closest beaches to the villa that we suggest you to visit are:
- Loutraki (4 km): Loutraki beach is a waveless beach with fine sand, between the rocky shore of the bay. Also there you will find restaurants and beach bars.
- Marathi (5 km): Marathi has two wonderful beaches, divided by the pier of the harbor. None of the two do take precedence over the other, both are sandy and well organized with sun beds and umbrellas. The most important advantage with the beaches in Marathi is that you'll almost never see the sea with waves, even when it blows in western Crete. Also there you can find taverns and cafes by the sea. Marathi is ideal for families with children.
- Kalathas (10 km): Kalathas beach is quite long and most of the time you will not feel crowded. However, if you're looking for a secluded spot, you'll probably find it in one of the sides of the beach. Be aware that Kalathas beach is being affected by the winds.
- Seitan Limania (13.7 km): There you will find a beach that differs from other beaches. Nature created three inlets between the steep cliffs of the peninsula. In one of them is located the well-hidden beach which is not organised. Be aware that in order to reach Seitan Limania beach, you have to park your car and then climb down a path, not that easy for children or elderly people.
Moreover, on the west coast of Crete you can find some of the most amazing well known natural beaches of Crete and Greece like “Phalasarna”, “Ballos”, “Gramvousa” and “Elafonisi”. The distance to the west coast from the villa is about one hour by car and all the above beaches definitely worth a visit!
