tersanas beach on ChaniaTersanas  is a small coastal village located 13km northeast of Chania, Crete, Greece and hidden in a small cove on the west side of Akrotiri. It is actually the harbor of Chorafakia village, located just 1km northern. The area is well developed and is a popular destination for holidays.

The beach of Tersanas is shaped inside a natural harbor, which looks south. It is a sandy beach with white fine sand and shallow crystal clear water. It is quite small and looks usually crowded, especially on weekends. It is equipped with umbrellas, sunbeds, snack bar and showers. The calm water, combined with the proximity to the touristic facilities, make Tersanas ideal for family holidays. Due to the low depth of the sandy beach, it's ideal and safe for small children.
