Agioi Theodoroi or Thodorou
Agioi Theodoroi is located opposite the beach of Agia Marina in Chania, half a mile to the north.
It’s a beautiful small island for swimming. On the southern part of this little jewel and just above a huge cave, one can see the ruins of a Venetian castle built in 1537. While exploring the seabed and about 50 meters east of the southeastern coast of the island you can find the wreck of a German WWII plane (JU52) resting 4 meters underneath through the clear waters.
Thodorou has a rich history and many legends to tell us. Due to the rare fauna it hosts, it is declared a protected nature reserve and has become a breeding site for the Cretan wild goat “kri-kri”.
Lazaretta is a dazzling tiny island located opposite of Nea Chora, which is situated close to the old Town of Chania. In the 17th century was used by the Venetians as a leprosarium place of Chania. On the island, there’s a small sand beach, definitely a perfect place for a cool swim in the sparkly clear waters.
Maherida beach is located 14 km northeast of Chania and 1 km west of the village Chorafakia, very close to Tersanas. The bay faces southwest and is almost always calm. A stunning little beach with white sand and turquoise water is shaped in the center of the bay. The crystal waters make it an ideal place for swimming and relaxation.
A sunset cruise is a perfect conclusion for the day. A silky, smooth collusion of skyburst reds and yellows into the calm of night. Join us on this beautiful and relaxing trip. Let the sea set you free and enjoy the purple – pink colors as they embrace the Gulf of Chania.
