Just 15km north of Chania town, in the area of Akrotiri, lies the sea-side village of Stavros. In the area of Stavros there are two sandy beaches; one of them stretches out almost circularly right on the foot of a large hump – shaped barren mountain. Its slope was the filming location of the nominated with the academy award film ‘Zorba the Greek’, starring Anthony Quinn and Alan Bates.
During the summer, the two beaches of Stavros are very popular. They are equipped with umbrellas and are surrounded by quite a few taverns and coffee-shops. The village is small, but you will find everything you may need to the mini-markets. Next to Stavros there are clean and sandy beaches for swimming. If you are fans of water sports, Kalathas beach is 5km away; if you prefer something quieter Tersanas beach is 4km away; if you want something more organized, Marathi beach is 15km away; and if you like the crowd and the loud music Loutraki beach is next to Marathi beach.
