Silver Beach Hotel is on Gerani beach, just a stone’s throw from the blue of the Cretan Sea. The hotel is also only a short distance from Platanias which is the main tourist resort in the area.
While you are staying at Silver Beach, be sure to take the opportunity to visit the enchanting town of Chania which is just 13 km from the hotel.
Chania is not only one of the most beautiful towns in Greece, but also one of the most beautiful places in the entire Mediterranean.
Here, you can get a taste of Greek history by walking down the narrow streets in the old town, visiting the Venetian harbor and the cathedrals or exploring the Jewish quarter. Chania is sophisticated and charming, with lots of areas which look as if they are film sets where you, our Silver Beach guests, will be the stars.
The Venetian Harbor is one of the most picturesque ports in Europe.
Its symbol is the stunning Arabian Lighthouse, which was originally built in 1595 during the Venetian period, and is considered to be one of the oldest lighthouses in the world.
Halidon Street is home to important sights and impressive monuments. The Firka Fortress is just opposite the lighthouse and houses the Maritime Museum. You can also see the Giali Tzami (also called the Mosque Küçük Hasan) which was built by an Armenian architect in the late 17th century. It is now used as an art gallery.
The Old Municipal Market, first opened in 1913, when Eleftherios Venizelos was Prime Minister of Greece.
The Silver Beach hotel will put you in a great holiday mood and is a wonderful starting point for visiting the beaches at Agia Marina, Agioi Apostoloi, Paleochora, Marathi and Frangokastelo.
