Facilities

The beach is completely unorganised so make sure that you carry water and everything you need with you.

Notes

This exotic tiny beach with impeccable emerald waters is one of the best in the area of Chania and we all need to show respect so that it will be enjoyed as the exotic hideout it is.

It is surrounded by huge rocks, though they provide little shade.
As it is rather small, it can easily get overcrowded so try to avoid visiting at weekends and during the peak of the tourist season.

How to reach Seitan Limania

Seitan Limania is accessible only by rented cars and motorbikes.

Follow the road towards the airport of Chania.
Turn left right before the airport towards the village of Chordaki (Hordaki) and then follow the signs to Rizoskloko.

From then on, you will see numerous signs pointing the way to the beach.

The asphalt road descends abruptly, ending at a parking area.
Then a steep but OK-to-walk path starts from there and within 15 minutes it ends at this little paradise.

Do not forget the food and drinks since you are bound to spend all day there!

Please keep the beach clean so that it will be enjoyed everlastingly.
