Kokkini Hani holidays  2021

Perfectly set overlooking two gorgeous beaches, Kokkini Hani is a tranquil little resort on the northern coast of Crete, just a 15-minute drive from the lively capital of Heraklion. It’s got a great choice of restaurants, many specialising in seafood, plus a smattering of shops and cafés. It’s popular with families, thanks to its low-key charm and wide choice of child-friendly attractions in the area, which include an aquarium and a water park. The lovely sandy main beach is well equipped with sun loungers and amenities for water sports, or you could escape the crowds and head to the smaller beach. It’s a great base for exploring the region, whether you want to do some sightseeing or shopping in Heraklion, the vibrant capital of Crete, or visit the magnificent Minoan ruins at Knossos.

Kokkini Hani is fantastic destination if you want a laid-back holiday in the sun on the northern coast of Crete. Conveniently located just a short drive from the lively capital of Heraklion, it’s a tranquil little town, with two gorgeous beaches and plenty of atmospheric restaurants and tavernas. Families love it for its sandy beaches and low-key appeal, plus you’ll find an aquarium, a water park and other child-friendly attractions in the area. If you want some nightlife and shops, jump in a taxi to Heraklion or Hersonissos, both only 15 minutes away by car, or escape the coastal hubbub and explore the little hill villages just inland. Other top sights in the area include Knossos, the most spectacular Minoan site on Crete.



There are two beaches in Kokkini Hani, both of which boast crystal-clear waters. Like most beaches on the northern coast of Crete, they can get a little choppy when the wind picks up, but are protected by a series of breakers that stretch into the sea. The larger of the two has fabulous, golden sands, and boasts plenty of facilities, including sun beds and parasols for rent, and a few water sports are available, such as kayaking or paddle-boarding. The smaller beach is usually a little quieter, and is a mixture of sand and shingle. It is also well equipped, and both beaches are within easy reach of a great choice of restaurants and cafés. There are also a range of all inclusive beach front hotels to choose from in Kokkini.
