The first best thing about Germaniko Pouli beach is its closeness to the town of Chania. The second best thing is its excellent water and the soft sand. Our hotel was close to Germaniko, so we were frequently swimming there. We have been to Crete several times and have seen most of the sights on the island. This summer, we just wanted to relax. So, we would swim in Germaniko beach, go to Chania in the evenings and just make some short trips with the car. Close to Germaniko are also some nice beaches, such as Maleme and Drapanias with equally good quality sea.
