Chania is the former island capital of Crete; it is a large, bustling town on the north-west coast, with a colourful indoor produce market, old buildings and churches, loads of interesting shops selling souvenirs and locally produced crafts, plus several sophisticated restaurants. The beautiful Venetian harbour is at the heart of the old town and is a meeting place for both tourists and locals alike, this is where you can relax with a cooling drink and watch the world go by in one of the many open-air cafes, bars and tavernas whilst enjoy a delicious meal or tasty snack.
There is a wide choice of holidays in Chania available and there are many resorts surrounding this beautiful traditional town. There are long stretches of gorgeous golden sand beaches that run right along the Gulf of Chania and all resorts offer a wide choice of accommodation that ranges from luxurious resort style hotels down to family run hotels and apartments that all offer a warm Cretan welcome.
Chania Holidays – Gulf of Chania Resorts
Heading out of town the coast road runs west out of town past long stretches of the sandy beach on the Gulf of Chania, with roadside supermarkets, tavernas, bars and holiday accommodation at regular intervals. The nearest resort to Chania is the pretty town of Aghia Marina which is around 8kms away and was named after an original village nearby. The road continues through other beachside villages such as the more lively Platanias just along the coast and the quieter Gerani and to Maleme. Each resort offers something different and for the more active holidaymaker there are a number of walking trails, gorges and archaeological sites and are just waiting to be discovered. The mountain villages are worth a visit and offer stunning views over the impressive coastline. Car hire is recommended in this area for you to fully discover what this beautiful area of Crete has to offer.
