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.
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.
