The Crete region
Platanias is located in west Crete, just 11 kilometres west of Chania.
Platanias is one of the most popular tourists resorts in Crete and is so close to Agia Marina that they have essentially merged into a single large resort.
Of course, we are talking about the Platanias in Chania, not the Platanias in Rethymno. The two places are many kilometres distant but you might be confused by the same name.
Platanias and Agia Marina may seem two noisy, bustling places and everything is much more intense, especially if you've just come from a less touristy part of Crete. You certainly won't be bored here!
A busy nightlife, bars, restaurants, a large sandy beach and countless hotels along the seafront are the basic features of Platanias, the main tourist resort of Chania Prefecture.
Platanias and Agia Marina are near Chania, making it easy to get to if you're on holidays in west Crete - it's close to Chania Airport, and you can visit beautiful Chania whenever you feel like it.
Municipality of Platanias covers an area of over 70000 sm. According to the latest cencus in 2000 it has a population of over 5000 inhabitants. There just 13 villages and small hamlets with in this area. All on the north coastline of the Chania area in the island of Crete.
The villages that became municipality of Platanias in 2000 are: Gerani, Maleme, Kontomari, Vrises, and Syrili. Today Platanias is probably one of the wealthiest and more popular areas of Chania Crete.
Platanias is built along a beautiful sandy beach and it is located on the main coastal road. Platanias has busy nightlife and a peaceful village atmosphere at the same time! In Platanias village you can warm yourself with the Cretan sun and local hospitality.

This villa is amazing. Quiet and secluded and yet only 10 minutes in the car to the shops and tavernas of Platinias or 20 minutes to Chania. Spotlessly clean and linen changed and villa cleaned ever… More
