Where to have fun

Old Harbor of Chania

One of the most precious places of Chania is the Old Harbor located in the center of Chania, in the old town. Whenever you visit it, you will definitely be amazed. The busiest point is the waterfront of the harbor where you can find a lot of cafeterias, bars, restaurants and other shops. You will see buildings and monuments that are preserved from the periods of the Venetian Domination (1252-1645), the Turkish Domination (1645-1898) and the Egyptian Domination (1831-1841). A tour to the old town’s narrow streets is highly recommended since there you will find all kinds of shops with traditional products, handmade jewellery, and much more.
The best night bars and clubs for cocktails are the Charles Monastery bar, Key bar, Synagogue, 2 Lux bar, Pallas, Faggoto, Barraki and Ababa.

Agia Marina – Platanias

Agia Marina beach is one of the most cosmopolitan beaches of Crete. It is located 9 kilometers away from Chania and its length is more than 2 kilometers. It is one of the most organized beaches of the prefecture of Chania, with organized facilities, shops, cafeterias, beach bars and restaurants. There is also a wide variety of water sports for those who love them. The beach is ideal for families with children because its waters are shallow and warm. Also, it is perfect for young people who want to relax and have fun at the beach bars. Another feature of the area is the islet of Agioi Theodoroi or Thodorou, which is very close to the beach. It hosts the protected wild goats of Crete which are known as Kri-Kri.
