Agios Onoufrios is a small seaside village of Akrotiri, which is located 8km north of Chania and close to Kounoupidiana. The village is actually a suburb of Chania, since it is very close to the city. It is named after the small chapel next to the beach that is dedicated to St. Onoufrios and celebrated on June 12.
The beach of Agios Onoufrios is quiet and is hidden in a well-protected bay. It is pebbly and not very well organized. It is mainly preferred by the residents of the wider area. The picturesque landscape, with the traditional taverns and the peaceful sea is a good reason to visit Agios Onoufrios. The only discordant voices in the tranquil landscape are the fuel tanks which are located northwest of the beach.
