Really nice beach for snorkeling and enjoying with the family. Great taverns all around the beach, very easy to just pop over and have lunch.

Stavros beach is a 30 minutes drive from Chania. The beach, the sea and the mountains are a pure beauty. Good restaurants nearby.

The fact that the epic movie "Zorba The Greek" was filmed here made the visit particularly special, as did the fact that I am also of Cretan origin. Highly recommended!

I visited the beach by bus and only one beach bar asked me for €15 even if I was by myself ridiculous. The sea is clean but when u enter is full of slippery rocks. Not a place I would go again. Restaurants over priced.
