Chania and Crete in general are known for the many ideal locations that are offered to surfers.
If you enjoy windsurfing – a very popular sport on the island – locations like Elafonisi are ideal for beginners. For those that are seeking a more advanced thrill Agia Marina is ideal.
If you too have come to love the new craze of Stand Puddle Surfing (SUP) then the beach of Falassarna and Paleochora is the place for you.
For the classic surfer the entire northern shore is yours to explore with its shallow wavy waters and strong winds. The beach of Platanias is a favorite.
