Chania is a very famous holiday destination for its lovely sandy beaches (perhaps the best of the four prefectures of Crete) and the beach bars that are built next to the sea. The beach bars are built in the most central beaches of the most recognisable waterfront villages of Chania prefecture. The visitors can have coffee, food and drinks while playing with the sea and the pools.
Ilios and Ammos (Agia Marina) is one of the hottest beach bars of Chania with locals and a few tourists until the first late hours (21:00). Loud music with Greek and foreign hits creates a fantastic atmosphere. Every day hundreds of locals play beach-tennis and swim in the clear waters of Agia Marina, in front of the islet of Agioi Theodoroi.
Kosta Kosta (Agia Marina) is a lovely beach bar restaurant with a few sofas on the beach next to Ilios and Ammos. It offers nice music, a tropical atmosphere and sea sports. It is suggested for small families and couples. Next to Kosta Kosta is built the famous club Villa Mercedes.
