Area Overview

Situated on Crete’s northwest coast, Chania is the island’s second largest city. Although it has become more modernised over time, it still retains much of its Venetian charm through its harbour, fort and lighthouse, whilst the town itself is full of old Venetian buildings. Chania beach, where the water is calm and shallow, is just a 5-minute walk from the harbour, where you’ll find lots of cafes and tavernas. The waterfront area and the adjacent streets come alive at night, when locals and tourists alike make their way to the many bars, clubs and restaurants to enjoy the local cuisine and evening entertainment.

Things To Do in Chania

  • Palace of Knossos: The island’s most popular attraction is just south of Heraklion. It was once the centre of Crete’s Minoan civilisation and is said to be where the Minotaur once lurked in the labyrinth. Guided tours take you round the royal apartments, throne room and frescoes and explain the myths surrounding the old kings.
  • Imbros Gorge: An enjoyable 8- kilometre walk across a ravine that offers views of the White Mountains. It follows footpaths adjacent to wildflowers and ends up at Frangokastello where you can enjoy looking round a 14th century Venetian castle.
  • Firkas Fortress: Situated on the old harbour, this is a great place for taking in the views from the watchtowers and posing for photographs with the old cannons.
  • Maritime Museum: Ideally positioned next door to Firkas Fortress, you can enjoy model ship displays and treasure salvaged from wrecks off the coast.
  • Scuba Diving: With an underwater world of marine life and colourful fish, the Mediterranean waters are a perfect place to enjoy some scuba diving. Instruction and equipment are available, and all standards from experienced scuba divers to complete beginners are welcome.

When to go to Chania

Expect 12 hours of sunshine and average temperatures in the 30s coupled with very little rain in Chania during July and August.

Spring and autumn are ideal times to go if you prefer cooler temperatures and plenty of sunshine. These seasons are popular with those who enjoy walking and sightseeing holidays.
