        Location

        Location

        Directly located on Gerani Beach in the northwest of Crete, the TUI BLUE Atlantica Caldera is ideal for a beach holiday. The beach is sandy with small pebbles - therefore bathing shoes are recommended. The nearest shopping facilities are in Platanias (1.5 kilometres away) and Chania (12 kilometres away). It takes about 20 minutes by taxi or hired car.

        • On the northern coast of Crete 
        • On the sand-and-pebble beach of Gerani 
        • About 1.5 kilometres from the centre of Platanias 
        • Travel time to Chania Airport is about  35 minutes.  (Transfer time may vary)
           

        TIP: Crete is famous for its many dream beaches. To the east of the sand and pebble shoreline of Gerani Beach lies the fine sandy beach of Platanias, quite near the hotel. Here, you can build impressive sandcastles with your little ones. Mind the fenced areas: This is where sea turtles come to breed - please don't disturb them.
