Glaros beach is located 5 kilometers west of Chania city and is the coastal front of the village Kato Daratsos in the province of Kidonia and in the area of Makris Tihos. The beach is bounded to the west by Kalamaki and to the east by the beaches of Agii Apostoli. The beach is separated from the west beach at Agii Apostoli with a very thin strip of land that ends at the cape where the church of the Holy Apostles (Agioi Apostoli) is built.
Glaros beach has fine sand and plenty of tamarisk trees where you can find shade if you do not wish to rent an umbrella. Situated very close to the city of Chania, it is one of the most popular beaches in the area. Glaros is open to the north winds, so if it's wavy you can move to the nearby protected bays of Agii Apostoli.
