The splendid sandy beach of Platanias and its aquamarine waters make it one of the busiest resorts westwards of the town of Chania. The beach is extended for kilometres round the homonym village. The visitor has the chance to view an enchanting setting with the island of Agios Theodoros in the east and the peninsula Rodopou in the west. Certain parts of the beach are particular organised and deck chairs and umbrellas are available, but in the bigger part the beach of Platanias is unexploited.
In Seitang Harbor, on the northeastern side of Akrotiri in western Crete, 20 km from the city of Chania, there is a beach different from all other.
The site is known as Seitan Harbors. The word Seitan is Turkish, which has obviously been left since the Ottoman rule in Crete, and is translated as a dialogue. Therefore the Seitan Harbors are translated as the Devil’s.
However, the Seyhat Harbor beach looks more paradoxical than diabolical.
