Gay Travel: Five Beautiful Crete Beaches
As the largest island of Greece and the second largest in Europe, you’re right to expect that Crete boasts beaches aplenty. Though the main transportation hubs of Chania and Heraklion have their own beaches nearby, you can do better.

Instead of stopping there, head for some of these beautiful beaches that are further afield, and far less crowded. All of them offer basic facilities in the high season (July-September) and many will be totally deserted outside of those months. If you want sun, sand, and the bathwater-warm Mediterranean, plus some towering mountains, Crete is your Greek island.

Less than an hour north of Chania, the small village of Stavros on the Akrotiri Peninsula has a beautiful white sand beach at the foot of a towering mountain. With restaurants, guesthouses, and bars nearby, you could head straight here from nearby Chania airport. If you do want to explore the city, public buses leave twice a day for just a few Euros.
