Tersanas Beach

Tersanas Beach is a small coastal village, approximately 13km away from the city of Chania. It is actually the port of Chorafakia village, located only 1km away from the beach.

The beach of Tersanas is small and sandy with shallow green-blue waters. Its distinctive characteristic is the small natural port that surrounds the beach and protects it from the wind. Rich plantation on the sand offer guests a cool shelter under their shade.

Tersanas is a well organised beach that offers everything a family with children needs so as to have fun. The small village is ideal for a relaxing family holiday next to the sea.
