Gerani is a small coastal village located 13 km west of Chania city, located between Maleme and Platanias. It is situated in a verdant valley with olive and citrus groves, that once were the main income source here; today tourism is the main growth factor. The beach of Gerani has a length of 2.5 km and has lovely sand and clear water. Next to the beach, there are many touristic amenities, making it ideal for family holidays. There are umbrellas, showers, beach bars, water sport services and lifeguards.
Near the beach, there are several tamarisk trees, where you can find shade. For those that wish to stay remote, there are some points along the coast that are less crowded and are not organized.
