The area has small cafe bars and access to some watersports.
The other beach is smaller and less popular but it’s a hidden gem, all the same. The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle and you can grab refreshments from the local supermarkets that sit above the beach.
In Kokkini Hani there are some excellent places to fish due to the rocky outcrops around the area or if snorkeling is more your thing then you will be spoilt for choice.
You can also visit CretAquarium which has been built quite recently in Gouves on the old American Naval base. The aquarium houses all the native fish from the seas around Crete and is a great day out for you and the family.
Kokkini Hani isn t known for its lively nightlife although you will find a small selection of local bars which serve well priced drinks including local beers and cocktails. The bars you will find are on the main road. We enjoyed visiting Taverna Ambrosia for a traditional Cretan taste which located on the beach road towards Gournes but there are quite a few other restaurants all serving up excellent Greek dishes.
If you want to experience a great night out with drinks and foods included then see your holiday representative about Greek night, this is a night out in Anopolis mountains, you get to the village and you are greeted by locals in traditional Cretan dress serving you up a glass of Raki. After this you have a chance to wander around the local village and see the small church at the end of Anopolis village.
After browsing the local area you are taken into the large amphitheater where they serve up a huge buffet of local Cretan and Greek food and unlimited bottles of the local Krassi wine. The wine be to everyone's tastes but after a few glasses you won’t even taste the wine anymore and will be wanting to get up and join in with the Greek dancers that entertain you throughout the night.
