BlueBeach is on the north west of the Akrotiri peninsula of Crete, where the Mediterranean meets the Ionian Sea. The scenery here is so spectacular that it was used as the location for filming "Zorba the Greek".

Today, it is still wonderfully unspoiled; an area of natural beauty and tranquility, yet only nine miles from Chania (pronounced, and sometimes spelt Hania) and the beautiful old Venetian port. You can catch a bus into Chania or, if you prefer, Manolis, your host, offers excellent rates for car hire, so that you can explore the beauty of Crete yourself.

At Blue Beach you' can learn about the places of interest worth visiting and we can arrange excursions (to Samaria Gorge, Knossos etc).
There is a regular bus service from Blue Beach to the centre of Chania and vice versa. Bus schedules vary in frequency depending on the season.
