Kokkini Chani with a rented car - What to know?
Kokkini Hani, like all the other villages on Crete's north coast hit by the tourist boom, once got its livelihood from fishing the Cretan Sea in small boats. A 15-minute drive east of the Heraklion airport, the drive there is scenic, and most of its 14 kilometres offer great views of the sea. The village rolls itself out in a splendid panoramic view after about the 9th kilometre. Kokkini Hani is a great destination for a relatively quiet vacation, which can be transformed into a more lively vacation by travelling just a few kilometres.
Therefore Kokkini Chani is an ideal place to collect your rental car and start your tour around the island to discover and explore the magnificent of Crete, the traditional villages, to visit monuments or to relax in one of the Cretan beaches.
"Hani" is the Turkish word for "inn," and the place name comes from an inn situated there around the turn of the 20th century which serviced rural travellers going to and coming from Heraklion. "Kokkini" is "red" in Greek, but whether this was the Turkish version of the Red Roof Inn is highly debatable.
The area has many beaches, protected by small artificial piers. The beaches are sandy and have shallow turquoise water. Most beaches are formed in front of hotels, but access is open to everyone. The area is full of shops and restaurants and all beaches are well organized with umbrellas, lifeguards, water sports and the basic tourist infrastructure. The nightlife in Kokkini Chani is not particularly intense, especially compared to that of Malia and Hersonissos.
