Chania Platanias Village

Platanias Chania: Platanias is a village situated 15 km west of Chania town and one of the largest tourist resorts in Crete. The village owns its name to the many plane trees scattered along the shore of the river Platanias.

Frequent local buses link Platanias to Chania. Mostly full of package tourists, the busy resort has all kind of accommodations from luxury hotel complexes to simple, family owned rooms for rent.

Numerous restaurants, Greek taverns, bars, clubs and shops can be found in Platanias as well as beautiful long sandy beaches, although sometimes exposed to the winds, but with amazing pristine waters. All these highly developed touristy facilities have driven Platanias a bit far from the real authentic Crete, but it remains a great place for those who want to enjoy good touristy facilities and various sea sports on the beach.
