Kokkini Hani has been a popular spot since the early twentieth century, when it served as a way station for local farmers on their way to the markets of Heraklion. In those early days the site developed a booming hospitality trade, with a number of comfortable hotels and restaurants. This tradition survives today – but with the addition of numerous modern touches, and a much greater influx of visitors thanks to the nearby Heraklion airport.

If you want to be able to enjoy a few good nights out during your holiday to Crete, but don't want to find yourself in a resort full of noisy nightclubs, then Kokkini Hani might be the perfect option. While not as busy as popular neighbours such as Hersonissos or as bustling as Heraklion, the town nevertheless offers a good selection of bars and clubs, where you can enjoy a wide range of drinks, and DJs playing all the latest tunes.

Life's a Beach

The beaches in Kokkini Hani are some of the most authentic in the Greek Islands. Unlike the smooth, plain stretches of sand that you’ll sometimes encounter at the larger resorts, in Kokkini Hani the coastline is a little more rugged, offering plenty of hidden coves and inlets, where you’ll be able to find a private spot to swim or sunbathe. The great Rinela Beach is home to some of the best all inclusive hotels in the area.
