The Chania Prefecture region
The Crete region
Beautiful Crete and Chania, a heavenly and pure land brimming with natural beauty, history, memory and culture. It is a land whose visitors will experience nature in all its glory and will encounter breathtaking sights.
Endless stretches of seashore bordered in frothy lace, inlets and islands of exotic beauty and sandy beaches tucked away at the foot of forbidding mountains. Impenetrable but yet such majestic gorges, holy caves, blessed rivers and lush, green plateaus thickly covered with olive and citrus trees. It is a self-sufficient land in every way that is rich in endemic and rare flora and fauna.We highly recommend that you take a stroll in the city centre of Hania which is steeped in history; a sightseeing tour of the crossroads and the winding cobbled paths of civilizations with the starting point being the most central point in Hania: the Municipal Market or the Agora.The Venetian old town with its harbour and Lighthouse, with its excellent restaurants and shops will fascinate you!
"Akrotiri" (the Cape) is the common name of the peninsula that lies 10km to the north-east of the city of Chania and north of Souda Bay.Known amongst locals as Chania's “Acropolis”, it is characterized by its rolling plateau with the exception of a mountain chain along the north coast named “Skloka”, with the highest summit at 528m.
Akrotiri is an area for nature experiences and exciting hikes in all areas. Lovely ravines in the mountains lead into beautiful small coves. There are several caves with stalagmites and stalactites in fascinating shapes. Archaeological discoveries indicate that in antiquity, these caves were places of sacred worship and refuge from pirates.
While parts of the Akrotiri coast are cliffs, there are many beautiful beaches, most of them well protected by bays and not affected by the “meltemia” (northern summer winds). Some of these are Stavros (the beach where the movie Zorba was filmed), Kalathas, Tersanas, and Marathi. All are well kept and clean, and are awarded the European Blue Flag annually. From Kalathas to Stavros there are a number of good hotels though the quiet and peaceful area bears little evidence of traditional tourism.
There are also three small islets very close to the coast. The most important is the islet of Souda with a Venetian fortress and a light house which is expected to be opened again to the public in 2008 after many years of restriction.
The views from most parts of Akrotiri are unique; the White Mountains, Souda Bay with the area of Apokoronas beyond, the sea, the town of Chania, the north coast, and the distant peninsulas of Rodopou and Gramvoussa can all be seen from Akrotiri. In addition there are views to the countryside known for its fertile land and large areas of olive groves and vineyards.
Its dry climate combined with the sea breeze forms an ideal environment not only for residents but also for the fruit and vegetables produced which are renowned for their high quality and taste.
Kounoupidiana serves as the “centre” of Akrotiri and offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and other services, and is in addition home to The Polytechnic University of Crete. The road network is good and with frequent bus service to Chania.
Akrotiri is only ten to twenty minutes by car from Chania and ten minutes from the international airport. With its picturesque Venetian harbour and charming historical town, Chania, seeped in culture, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece.
• Agios Antonios
• Poro Mavre
• Agios Onoufrios
• Tersanas & Maherida
The northwest area of the Akrotiri Peninsula enjoys stunning views towards Chania and the Aegean Sea and the surroundings are perfect for biking, walking and site seeing. Seafood and fish is excellent in this area, which is famous for seafood tavernas to local people as well as visitors of the region. Kalathas is a beautiful sandy beach, perfect for sunsets, as it is facing west. The small island in the cove of Kalathas adds to the sunsets scenery and offers a good spot for snorkeling. Perfect for couples or families with children of all ages, the beach has golden soft sand and is sheltered and shallow, thus safe for everyone.
