Sonio Beach Hotel is located 400m from Platanias square,  20 km from Chania airport and 10 km from the city of Chania. The Platanias mile long  beautiful sandy beach where the Aegean water changes constantly in color and character, is just a barefoot distance from Sonio Beach.

The town of Platanias is the largest and one of the best of a series of beautiful beach resorts along the northwest coast of Chania Province.

It's offering a great variety of restaurants, nightly entertainment, great shopping and plenty of interesting nearby destinations. It is a must destination for families or couples who want a nice quiet beach vacation, or singles who would like to meet that special someone, with maybe champagne romance on the beach under the moonlight nice dinners and maybe a little shopping. Night life is abundant here for those uneasy souls, with music bars, night clubs and great entertainment till the morning hours.

Platanias Beach is sometimes sunrise white, emerald green or sunset red and sometimes Mediterranean blue, shallow or deep with the waves a little higher perfect for daring surfers.

From Chania airport or Souda harbor, take the highway towards Kissamos. Get off at the Platanias exit. Continue the road until you reach an intersection (with a river in your right hand side) and turn east towards the Platanias village. After 500 m, turn left towards the beach to the Sonio Beach Apartments (a colorful sign is visible on the main road).
