Golden Beach (Chryssi Akti)

    Just 2.5km west from Chania city you will find Golden Beach, an ideal beach for families with children. It is awarded with a ‘Blue Flag’ and it owes its name to its beautiful golden sand. Golden Beach is very well organised and the strong winds in the area do not seem to affect its shallow, clear waters. After you enjoy yourselves swimming and playing with the sand at the beach, you could relax with your family at the small taverns or cafes nearby.

    A really big plus of Golden Beach is the playground situated next to the beach. The wider area up to St. Apostolous has rich plantation and is filled with eucalyptus, pine trees and small parks. It’s really nice for jogging or walking either in the morning or late afternoon when temperatures are not that high. For those of you who are fans of beautiful beaches but do not wish to spend too much time driving, Golden beach is a great choice! It’s so close to Chania city that you could reach it on foot.

    • Ι never imagined that we could find such a beautiful beach right next to the city! The sea shore is wonderful and a family can find all the comforts they might need.

    • Clean sea, shallow waters, nice sandy beach and a playground! There’s no better combination for relaxed quality time with the family at the beach.

    • We are a big family, so commuting from one place to the other during our vacation is not that easy for us…Someone suggested that we should try Golden Beach and we thought why not! As soon as we arrived we got very excited! The sea was beautiful and the place really wonderful for children.

    • At Golden Beach our children spent many hours playing carefree in the shallow waters and at the playground which gave us some time to relax and enjoy swimming and tanning under the hot sun.
