"Go to KOUM KAPI"!
Koum Kapi (that's Turkish for the Sand Gate) is an extended sand beach on the western side of the Old Venetian Harbour, and takes 5 minutes to get there, once in Sarpidonos Street.In that point, which is always windy and wavy, finish the Venetian Walls and give way to a sandy beach.Some people like to swim there, because is close and convenient, but I would not recommend it!!!
Along the sandy beach, there many nice cafes and bars, providing the ideal setting to sip your coffee or your drink.It is the "rendez-vous" point for thousand of people from Chania and not only! Tourists ignote that place and it is a pity!
