Kalathas is the first beach we come across, leaving from Chania and heading north. The characteristic of this beach is not only its crystal clear waters, but also a very small island that lies close to the coast. The next beach we come across is that of Stavros, which is very well known, as the great movie "Zorba the Greek" was filmed in this magnificent spot. Marathi is a very nice beach, where you can swim, do water sports or taste the local dishes in one of the taverns.
