Information about Beachfront Hotels in Crete

If waking up by the sound of ocean waves and a gentle sea breeze is your idea of a perfect holiday, there’s no doubt that you should look out for a beachfront hotel. There’s nothing more relaxing and invigorating than a clear view over the deep blue sea and stepping with your bare feet on a sandy beach as you step out of bed. The Greek island of Crete is famous for its over 1.000 km coastline and endless beaches with crystal-clear turquoise and deep blue waters.

Especially on the north coast, you’ll find countless hotels and holiday resorts that feature their own private beach or have direct access to some of the most popular beaches. Over 100 beaches in Crete have been awarded the Blue Flag, meeting the strict criteria of the best, most secure and cleanest beaches in the world. The northern Cretan coast is preferred by most seaside travellers not only due to its shallow waters and sandy beaches but also due to its proximity to the island’s airports and major cities. The beautiful towns of Chania, Rethymnon, Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos offer plenty of unique architecture, culture, cuisine and history to discover.

There are three areas in Crete that feature the most beachfront hotels, where one beachfront hotel is next to the other.

The first one is located at the western outskirts of Chania in the areas of Stalos, Agia Marina, Platanias and the beach that ends at Kissamos village, featuring breath-taking landscapes of turquoise waters merged with white and pink sand, surrounded by a rough vegetation of herbs and plants.

The second most popular beachfront hotel location in Crete is the area between Heraklion Town and Agios Nikolaos at the beach-side resorts of Hersonissos, Malia and Stalis. Within a scenic setting between marinas, boats, wild nightlife, Caribbean-like beaches, traditional Greek village charm and panoramic views, you can enjoy all the amenities a Greek seaside holiday has to offer.

The third spot with plenty hotels on the beach is Rethymno Town and its eastern outskirts of Platanes, Adelianos Kampos and Sfakaki. The sandy beach extends for about 10km from Rethymno Town to Skaleta and most hotels offer direct access to the beach in from of them.

In southern Crete, the two villages with the most beachfront hotels are Plakia in Rethymnon Perfecture and Makry Gialos in Lasithi Perfecture.

In Travelmyth you can try hotel searches in a combination of categories. Many travellers combine the beachfront category with the luxury category. If this is the case, the best luxury beachfront hotels in Crete are found in Elounda.

With almost 600 beachfront hotels in Crete, the choices are unlimited and vary from basic apartments and bed-and-breakfast hotels to premium 5-star holiday resorts and villas. Time to find your favourite!
