The Akrotiri Peninsula lies just 10km away from the main city of Chania. The best thing about Akrotiri is it remains largely untouched by tourism, with quaint little villages nestling close to the coastline or sitting proudly in the hillsides of the peninsula. You will find a lot of villages around this area and some amazing white sandy beaches, where you will find yourselves the only person on the beach.
Akrotiri has approximately 10.000 inhabitants. Some of them live in the charming and traditional villages; others live in attractive small new suburbs of Profitis Ilias, Kounoupidiana, Korakies, Kalathas, Agios Ounoufrios, etc. Kounoupidiana serves as the “centre” of Akrotiri and offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and other services, and is in addition home to The Polytechnic University of Crete. The road network is good and with frequent bus service to Chania.
The villages of Akrotiri are: Sternes, Horafakia, Mouzouras, Argoylides, Aroni, Agios Nikolaos, Pazinos , Anemomyloi, Marathi, Kathiana, Kampani, Stavros, Kalorouma, Hordaki, Rizosklopo, and Agia Zoni.
Akrotiri is only ten to twenty minutes by car from Chania and ten minutes from the international airport. With its picturesque Venetian harbour and charming historical town, Chania, seeped in culture, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece.The beach of Agios Onoufrios is a quiet beach, located in a protected bay at the homonymous village of Akrotiri.
Agios Onoufrios is located 8 km north of Chania and near Kounoupidiana which is why it is a suburb of Chania.
The beach is not very organized and mostly preferred by the residents of the region. The beautiful coast of Agios Onoufrios, the picturesque environment, with traditional taverns and the calm sea are some good reasons to visit it.
The small, post-Byzantine church of Agios Onoufrios which is located there and celebrates on June 12, has given the name to the beach and the village.
