  • Overview

    Located between Chania and Crete’s capital, Heraklion on the north coast, Rethymnon Town boasts a 12km long stretch of sandy beach sloping gently into the azure Aegean Sea making it ideal for families. Crete’s third largest town, it is a vibrant and colourful place with the 2km long coastal promenade lined with restaurants, cafés and shops and the pretty old quarter a maze of narrow streets and alleyways to explore.

    The island’s Venetian rulers left their legacy in the town’s architecture including the huge fortress, Fortezza dominating the skyline, the enchanting harbour, a 17th century Loggia and the Rimondi Fountain in the heart of the Old Town, whilst Rethymnon’s minarets and domed mosques serves as a reminder of its Ottoman rulers.
