Gerani is much less developed than its neighbour Platanias but also has a number of big hotels as well as many small family businesses renting rooms, studios and apartments.
Location of Gerani
On the main coastal road, 16 km from Chania. Frequent buses.
Reasonably quiet place somewhat lacking in atmosphere.
You can find everything from luxury hotels to simple rooms.
A fair choice of restaurants
A few shops to cover your basic needs
A few bars but otherwise you'll need to go to Platanias, the neighbouring village
Long pebble beach, generally very quiet. See more about the beach here.
