About the location
Dipped into Crete’s north-west coast, Chania is one of the island’s biggest cities with a boatload to offer. It’s an up-and-comer on Crete’s nightlife scene, tipped to be the newest and brightest hotspot, with a cosmopolitan mix of chic restaurants, big DJs and exclusive beach bars. Its old town is one of the prettiest in the Greek Islands, with a colourful Venetian quarter clustered around the old harbour. It’s chock full of charm, with grand townhouses, tiny restaurants and swanky hotels nestled in between Turkish architecture and museums. Chania is crowned by a striking lighthouse overlooking the resort’s other gift: the coast. There’s a lovely little beach by the harbour, framed by Greek tavernas and bars, and you’re close to some of the best Blue Flag beaches on the island if you fancy going further afield. 
Transfer time
25 minutes from Chania airport, 1 hour 55 minutes from Heraklion airport.
