Holidays to Chania (Crete)
Crete's second largest city, Chania, on the Greek island of Crete’s north west coast offers holidaymakers to Greece a mix of sun soaked beaches, historical sights and delicious Mediterranean cuisine in equal measure. Its pretty Venetian old town is perhaps the city’s best feature, a wander around its maze of cobbled streets filled with museums, galleries and shops, proving the perfect way relax and unwind.
This spacious sandy beach is Chania’s main offering. It’s popular with families and lined with bars and restaurants.
Agii Apostoli beach
This lovely beach just outside Chania is clean and quiet. It gets windy making it perfect for watersports.
Heraklion Archaeological Museum
The exhibits in this incredible museum span over 5000 years, and showcase Minoan and ancient Roman artefacts.
Once the Minoan capital of Crete, Knossos is an impressive archaeological site that's well worth exploring.
From fresh Greek honey to souvenirs, you can buy just about anything in Crete's markets.
If you're feeling adventurous, why not try one of the many watersports activities on offer?
Harbour front dining
The city’s Venetian harbour is a dining hot-spot, lined with some of Crete’s best restaurants with great views.
Try Hirina apakia
This dish of smoked pork takes a few days to make, and is usually served cold in thin slices. Great with a local wine.
Avalon Metal Bar
You'll find this rock and metal bar in the old harbour. Enjoy loud music and choice of 70 beers.
For an atmospheric setting and good cocktails, head to this low-key bar set in the ruins of an ancient synagogue.
