Walking along the harbor is a must do while in Chania. Make sure you venture out to the other side where the lighthouse is so you can get the view of the harbor. It's so picturesque. The walk takes longer than it looks, as you literally walk the length of the harbor but from the other side. But it's a nice walk and can be romantic for couples.

Walking allong the old harbor of Chania can change your mood comletely! It is a beautiful sight to see, the small streets around it are full of little shops for suvenirs, clothes, shoes e.t.c., to spend your time and money! All though the restaurants are really tempting there, try to find places that are a bit hiden in the alleys around the port. It will cost you less and you will get better food and service for sure!

Fantastic view of the water. Plenty of restaurants to sit, have a drink, and enjoy the sunset. Lots of activity, music, people, and vendors.

The port with the light house offers a pleasant view without being spectacular.

The area is filled with bars and restaurants and bustling with life.

A must see when visiting Chania!

Another stop off during our cruise with the harbour specifically recommended as a place to visit.
Fantastic views all around the harbour with the wall walk to the Venetian lighthouse well worth the effort. Loads of shops and restaurants for food and drink, if needed, watch out for the horse drawn carriages though!
As with most our ports of call the town itself was very busy but don't let that detract from the beauty and appeal of this old town.
