Agioi Apostoloi beach in Chania, Crete, Greece

The beach of Agioi Apostoloi (Saint Apostles) is located 4 km west of the city center of Chania on a small peninsula with successive little coves. This is one of the easiest beaches to get to if you are in the city, thus it is very popular to locals who get here for a quick everyday swim after work. Being close to Chania also makes this an ideal destination for bicyclists.

A little church that was built in the name of the St Apostles stands on a headland and has given its name to two of the coves that are graced with beautiful sandy beaches. These two beaches look like two drops of water, they are surrounded by rocks that protect them against bad weather and they have shallow waters that make them ideal for children. They are both organized with sun beds, umbrellas, a lifeguard, and canteens where you can find a WC or get some refreshments. There are many paths around the beaches that are interesting to explore. The surrounding area is covered by a park with trees and plenty of lanes where you can go jogging or have a relaxing walk or a picnic.
