The seaside village of Kalathas is just 9km north east from Chania, in the heart of a large natural bay of Akrotiri. Kalathas is a new village which has been inhabited by residents of Chania who wanted to live away from the downtown.
The beach, just 900 meters from the Villa Krini is gorgeous, with fine sand and shallow waters. Opposite the beach there is a small island where you can easily go by swimming . The beach is well organized with umbrellas, water sports, restaurants and palm trees which add an exotic tone to the landscape.
West of the main bay, behind the rocks on the beach, there is a more secluded bay. It is not organized and looks perfect for those who want more privacy.
