Open from April to November, Chania offers a few diving locations suitable for both novice and experts, most of the Mediterranean is known for poor visibility due to the sand that comes from Africa, Chania is on the Northern side of Crete hence is protected by the large amount of sands and keeps a good visibility to divers, the coral and fish are quite diverse and if you want to start your diving experience, Chania will be a great spot to begin with.

4 Wheels Drive (Jeep) Tours

The mountain terrain of Crete and the short distance from the high mountains and sea make the 4 wheels drive tours at the Chania area very special. One can rent a separate car or join another group, but the unique combination of year-round snowy mountains with beautiful beaches will make this 4-wheel drive tour a once in a lifetime experience.

All of Chania and Crete beaches are special, and although you can find the world famous Elafonissi Beach in every list of most beautiful beaches, all of Cretan beaches are quite special.
