Location & Details


Tersanas beach

Tersanas is a small coastal village hidden in a small cove on the west side of Akrotiri. It is actually the harbour of the Chorafakia village, located just 1km north of the village. The area is well developed and is a popular destination for holidays.
The beach of Tersanas is shaped inside a natural well protected harbour. It is a sandy beach with white fine sand and shallow crystal clear water. It is equipped with umbrellas, sunbeds, snack bar and showers. The calm water, combined with the proximity to the touristic facilities, make Tersanas ideal for family holidays.

Kalathas beach

The seaside village of Kalathas is in the heart of a large natural bay on the Akrotiri peninsula. The beach in front of the village is beautiful, with fine sand and shallow crystal clear water. Opposite Kalathas, there is a small island which you can easily reach by swimming. Next to the beach there are several palm trees that give an exotic tone to the landscape. Moreover, the beach is very well organized with umbrellas, water sports, restaurants, hotels, mini markets, etc. West of the main bay, beyond the rocky end, there is a secluded sandy bay.

Stavros beach

Stavros is a seaside village located at the northernmost edge of Cape Akrotiri. One characteristic feature of the area is the very steep camel-shaped mountain rising opposite the harbor of Stavros. The mountain is famous, because there were filmed scenes for the film “Zorba the Greek”, where Anthony Quinn danced the famous Sirtaki Dance in 1964. Then Stavros was a small fishing village. The two beaches of the area have contributed to the development of the area. The main beach is located east of the village, at the foot of the mountain, and next to the picturesque harbor. A circular bay is formed, fully protected by winds blowing in the region. The lagoon-like bay has marvelous white sand and shallow turquoise waters. The contrast of the wild mountain with the peaceful beach in the foreground makes Stavros a unique place for swimming. As expected, the beach is very well organized and provides all services. The second beach of Stavros is located north of the village, 200m northwest of the main beach. It has sand and rocks in places and is less organized than the first and less busy. The main drawback of this is that it is unprotected and the sea is usually wavy. At the peninsula dividing the two beaches of Stavros, you can see the remains of the ancient quarry, used for extracting limestone for building the Walls of Chania during the Venetian Era (13rd- 17th century).

Seitan Limania or Stefanou beach

Stefanou beach is located near the position of Seitan Limania (satan harbours), 2km east of the village Chordaki, at the east side of Akrotiri Cape. The area is named Seitan Limania, after the wild landscape, the steep cliffs and the strong sea streams. Here are situated three parallel narrow coves, well protected from the waves. They come as a surprise as in the middle of this wild landscape, it is not expected to see something so beautiful and tranquil. In the northern cove a tiny fantastic beach is shaped, with deep azure waters, namely the beach of Stefanou. The beach has fine pebbles and sand, transferred there from the nearby quarry through the canyon Diplohahalo. On the right and the left sides of the cove, huge marble rocks are standing high to protect the beach from the bad weather.
