Best beach in/near Chania

What is the prettiest beach near Chania? We are willing to rent a car if necessary, but since we only have one full day in Chania, we prefer it to be near the old city.

There is a lovely sandy beach at Kalives, about 20km east of Chania.

there is a string of beaches west of Chania accessible by public bus, look on your map. But if you only have one full day in Chania, why are u going to a beach??

Chania is the loveliest city in all of Crete, full of "photo ops" and things to explore; if you are not going to look around, why even stay there, you should be at some resort with a pool.

People say that there are nice beaches on the Akrotiri peninsula, look on the map, it's very close. You can drive up to some monastery or another, and then go down to beaches. Ask the rental car people about various options, and mark on the map they give you.
