The beach of Nea Chora
This place is within walking distance of many hotels and restaurants and is one of the beaches you can swim in near the Venetian Old Harbor.
There are plenty of sunbeds to choose from at quite reasonable daily rates. Behind the promenade are numerous cafe-bars and beach eqiuipment shops. Most of the cafes and restaurants provide service to their own blocks of sunbeds, and of course you can use their facilities.
You will surely enjoy the water there! It is usually calm and very clean and there are markers that prevent you from going too far. You can see fish on the bottom, and is a great relief from Chania's hot summer weather!
