Also known as Diktinna, Menies beach is located in the north west of the prefecture, just 45 Km from the center of Chania town. This small bay with white pebbles and deep, crystal clear turquoise water, is at the end of Fountas gorge on the north east tip of Rodopos Cape.

It is the ideal choice for those who want to avoid the crowds. You can reach it via a rough dirt track approximately 23 Km long or by boat from Platanias harbor.
