14. Frangokastello

For zoom-in, click the image.

History and natural beauty combine at Frangokastello. Here, you'll find an ancient Venetian castle overlooking a beautiful sand beach and the impossibly blue Libyan Sea stretching southwards.

The beach is gently sloping, so it's an ideal location for a family with small children and makes for an ideal day trip from Chania. The trip takes about 80 minutes, but plan for more time, as the route passes through the spectacular Imbros gorge, and you will most likely find yourself stopping for photos.

Spend some time lounging in a chair and then wander up to the castle and take a look. As this is not an overly touristy place, you may actually have the place to yourself.

A limited number of chairs and umbrellas are available to rent, and a few restaurants serve fresh seafood and other traditional Greek dishes.

A short 300 meters down the beach, Orthi Ammos is a completely undeveloped beach where sand dunes descend into crystal clear waters. This hidden gem of a beach is well worth the short stroll. At one end, the Akti Cafe serves good food and offers great views down the coast.
