Menies (near the ancient Diktynna). Located 45km northwest of Chania at the northeast coast of cape Rodopou, at the exit of the gorge Founta. Menies is situated at the borders of the archaeological site of ancient Diktynna, the most important worship temple of goddess Vritomartis, who is believed to be goddess Diana. It is a marvelous deserted beach with pebbles and deep crystal clear water. Due to the fact that the place is not affected by winds that usually afflict the area, it is the ideal place for those who want isolation and privacy. Close to Menies there is a small beach called Chironisia known by few and accessible only through sea.
