Chania: 5 thing you have to do

Chania: 5 thing you have to do

1.You have to visit the old Venetian Harbor of Chania.

The Old Town of Chania is a universe of its own, so if you want to experience Chania spend at least half a day exploring the Old Town of Chania, walk along the colorful cobble-stoned, visit small taverns and restaurants and enjoy traditional food with a magnificent view of old harbor.

2.You have to visit the pink sand beach of Elafonisi

West of Crete in Chania there is a beach named Elafonisi, located about 70 km from the center of town, it’s a great idea to take a day trip and discover this vast pink sand beach with incredible turquoise waters and which is included in the list of the best beaches in Europe every single year.

3.You have to walk your way to Balos lagoon.

Another spectacular beach one must visit when in Crete is Balos, this shallow lagoon formed at the very end of the Gramvousa peninsula is one of the most photographed places on the island.

4.You have to visit the castle by the sea

Frangokastello is a very tranquil village on the Libyan coast. The beach here is wide and shallow, something quite unusual in the south. This makes it a great place for families with kids.But the highlight of Frangokastello is the ancient Venetian fortress that lies meters from the sandy beach.

5.You have to see the sunset from the beach of Falasarna.

Not far from Kissamos lies one of the nicest beaches of Chania, Falasarna. Vast like no other, the beach is a great place to practice water sports on windy days.The sea in Falasarna is crystal blue and the beach wide and sandy. Falasarna, which directly faces the West, is probably the best place on Crete to admire the sunset.
