Activities and things to do
General Watersports
Nearly all resorts with organised beaches offer water sports of some description depending on the local conditions. They may vary from paragliding, waterskiing, kyaking, banana boats and jet skiing.
Waterpark - Limnoupolis
This great water park is set in a fabulous countryside setting away from the busy resorts of Chania. It’s 8 kilometres from the town of Chania and has a variety of rides from Kamikazi to the Lazy River.
Chania Resort
The heart of Chania is still the old town, and the hotchpotch of buildings from different eras illustrates the towns complex and turbulent history. The Venetian element is everywhere, from the harbour itself to the Firkas Fortress on the waterfront, which is now a maritime museum. The little streets that zig-zag the old town are full of elegant Venetian buildings, and you can still see the remains of the Venetian walls that once encircled Chania. By way of contrast there is also an ancient Turkish mosque on the waterfront, with Kastelli Hill rising behind it. The mosque is a great landmark, but is no longer used as a religious building, but as an exhibition space. The buildings of the old town are very much alive, and are now shops, restaurants, hotels, artisan workshops and private houses. The new town has grown up all around the old, but the two areas peacefully co-exist. The sandy beach is just a 5 minute walk from the harbour, so the town is very compact and manageable for the visitor.
War Cemetery Souda Bay
This pristine cemetery is a memorial to British, Australian and New Zealand soldiers and sailors who died during the battles. There are 1,527 graves each marked with a white headstone although sadly many do not have names. This tranquil spot draws many visitors annually who have made long journeys to pay their respects to a family member.
Samaria Gorge
The longest gorge in Europe and at 11 miles long, not for the faint hearted! It is here that the Krikri, the goats unique to Crete can be spotted. The gorge was designated a national park in 1962 and care is taken to protect the delicate ecosystem. For those less energetic visitors, a boat can be taken from Sfakia on the south coast into Aghia Roumeli which is the start of the gorge.

Janine Dalley, 18-Aug-2015

Beautiful villa in a lovely area - off the beaten track but near to lovely traditional tavernas and supermarkets. Pretty sea views, spacious and perfect for families - our kids were 7+ and all swim well so they loved the pool, pool table and tennis table. Everything was well kept and comfortable. Good Villa Plus rep support if needed. Waterpark and Balos beach are worth the trip. We got along without car hire, using taxis, walking and the local fun train. Highly recommended and we'd love to return.
