AREA & NEIGHBORHOOD
The house is located a mere 3-5 minute walking distance to Chrysi Akti beach and Agioi Apostoloi.
Agioi Apostoloi is a waterfront village, named after a small church called Agioi Apostoloi ("Saint Apostles") and it is famous for its coves.
The most well-known beach in the village is called Chrysi Akti ("Golden Beach"), due to the gold colour of the sand.
The second of Agioi Apostoli’s beaches is a horseshoe shaped sandy cove which is popular with swimmers. The beach is 500 meters long and 50 metres wide and can be accessed via wooden boards and ramps.
The third beach is the smallest beach in this Municipality at 300 metres long and 20 metres wide. The beach is approached by wooden boards and ramps and again has Blue Flag status. its shallow waters make it advisable for children.
Found only 4 km from the center of Chania, it is known for its small protected woods, and as a favorite beach for swimmers. The village is also known for its sardine feast. During the feast, lots of people, locals and visitors alike, gather here to freely taste the grilled sardines, drink raki, and listen to traditional Cretan music.
The waterfront of the Agioi Apostoloi (the park included) is under preservation by the authorities, therefore, there is still green space next to the sea. The local flora consists of many Pine, Nerium oleander, Palmaes and Eucalyptus trees. Sea Daffodil, a rare and protected species with large, delicate, white flowers and a strong scent, also grows in the area.
Environmental educational projects take place throughout the year, particularly regarding the Loggerhead (caretta-caretta) sea turtles that use the coastline to breed.
In Agioi Apostoloi, you can find very good beach bars. You can also find all the usual summer hot spots: bars, restaurants and taverns, cafés, shops etc. Apart from these, Chania city is in walking distance from Agioi Apostoloi, meaning you can have the best of both worlds: great beaches and superb sights.
Also, there is easy access to all other parts of the municipality like on the west the resorts of Platanias and Agia marina with their famous beach bars where you can enjoy your cocktail in a pool looking at the sunset over Thodorou islet. If you have a car (we recommend it and we can send you an offer for discounted prices if you need to) you can easily visit other world famous locations, like Balos peninsula and Falasarna beach or endure on the twisty and beautiful mountain routes that will take you through gorges and a wonderful unique Cretan natural habitat to Therisso or Elafonisi, Sfakia, Samaria gorge and so much more.
