Beaches and apartments in the North West Chania region

Some of the best beaches in Crete can be found right in the North West Chania region. Many of them are pretty undeveloped, or even totally isolated, without any tourist apartments or hotels, which makes them even more attractive.

First of all, in Kastelli Kissamos town there is the great beach of Mavros Molos, where Arodamos Apartments & Studios are located. It is the only "real" beach in the town with fine sand and crystal-clear water. Just behind the beach you can find restaurants, cafes and mini markets.

Another excellent beach in North West Chania is Balos lagoon and beach. Balos is an amazing tropical lagoon on the north part of the isolated Gramvousa peninsula. There are no apartments or accommodation options in Balos. The only thing you can find in the picturesque lagoon is a small cafe.

As there are no paved roads leading to it, the best way to get to to Balos lagoon is by boat from the Kastelli Kissamos harbor. The best way for your accommodation when visiting Balos is a good apartment in Kastelli Kissamos.

Another great beach in North West Chania is Falasarna (or Phalasarna). Falasarna is a kilometers-long sandy beach with crystal-clear water. The infrastructure is good. Close to the beach you can find some beach bars, canteens and restaurants. There are some tourist apartments in the area, but in a distance from the beach.
