During your stay at Esplanade Apartments you will certainly discover many things to do and many places to visit on your own, yet we would like to offer you some suggestions which will make your holidays even more interesting.
For breakfast, lunch or dinner you will find two restaurants at about 900m (2-3 minute drive) from our place.
There are also two local supermarkets "Isimo market" and "Stop & Shop market" withing walking distance (about 300-400m) of the hotel. You might want to visit them if you need to buy food or other supplies.
A little before the "Stop & Shop" market, on the opposite side of the main road is the Bus stop to Chania center. Buses run every 2 hours in high season and the ticket costs less than 2€ per person.
If the bus schedule doesn't suit you, a Taxi might be a good alternative, however it is more expensive and will cost about 12-15€ to get you to Chania. You can call a taxi by phone or via an application on smart phone.
For those who prefer driving the best option would be to rent a car. The price is about 30€ per day in low season and about 40€ per day in high season, including all taxes, full insurance etc.
At about 900m from the hotel, you can find the popular Kalathas beach. A wide, sandy beach with crystal clear waters. It's a great place both for recreation and relaxation.
Very close to Kalathas beach is Tersanas and Ag. Onoufrios beach. The very famous sandy beach of Stavros, where the film of ‘Zorba the Greek’ was made is only 7km from the hotel. There are many more great beaches in the area like Mahairida beach, Marathi beach, Loutraki beach and for something really special at the end of your holidays you should definitely visit Seitan Limania beach.
You could go jogging, for a walk or rent a bicycle and ride around the area of Akrotiri. There are several activities going around Kalathas village. There is organized scuba diving in Kalathas beach, snorkelling, horse riding in Horafakia or Deres, go-karts (free transfer from the hotel) and others.
You can spend anything from 4-5 days to 2-3 weeks at our place and still have many things to do during your holidays.
