In beautiful Agioi Apostoloi, embracing the beach is what it’s all about. The area’s three peninsulas boast four bays with wide, sandy beaches and coves galore. Agioi Apostoloi holidays offer a relaxed vibe rather than a tourist buzz, with the sands lined with pine and eucalyptus trees instead of lively bars and restaurants. That’s not to say there aren’t facilities. Agioi Apostoloi is just 3 kilometres from the centre of Chania, so all the perks of a city are within easy reach, and this makes it a popular spot for locals and tourists alike.
The area is famous for its sardine production – and a sardine festival – and holidays to Agioi Apostoloi are ideal for those looking to get a glimpse of traditional Cretan life. To the west, meanwhile, you’ll find the resorts of Agia Marina and Platanias, should you want to move things up a gear.
