What's Chania like

Chania, pronounced haa·nee·uh is the second largest town on Crete, it's located up in the north west of the island and has an international airport with regular flights from most of the UK.

The town itself covers over 8 square kilometres which incorporates both the old and new sections. Chania is the second largest town in Crete with Heraklion being the largest.

Tourists tend to be drawn to the old part of the town where you'll find the venetian harbour with it's hustle and bustle of countless bars and restaurants as well as shops selling local produce and souvenirs.
If you'd like to stay in the area then have a look at the Chania page of booking.com here. Alternatively find a great package holiday through Tui here or Jet 2 here.

Chania nightlife

The nightlife in Chania is superb, there's no shortage of places to go for a late night drink whether that's a few glasses of local wine with your meal or cocktails well into the early hours.

You'll also find lots of different entertainment options from Greek nights with traditional music and dancing to live music or DJs.

There's also a handful of clubs that are open well into the morning for those that like to go all night.

What to do around Chania

The extended area around Chania is home to some good entertainment options. There's a go karting track and paintball centre to the south of Chania and multiple scuba diving schools up by the harbour.

There's also the Venetian Lighthouse in the port where you can walk along the wall to get a close up look, unfortunately you can't go inside.
