Sitting pretty on the north coast of Crete you’ll find Heraklion’s neighbour, Kokkini Hani. Every summer, families flock to this beautiful village and with so much to see, do and enjoy, it’s hardly surprising why.
If you’re searching for a quiet and relaxing family resort, then our enchanting holidays to Kokkini Hani are for you. Take a stroll down to the seafront and you’ll come across two stunning stretches of beach. If you’ve got little ones with you, you might want to check out the largest one which is to the left of the resort as you make your way to Heraklion. Your kids will love spending hours on this fluffy blanket of sand that comes fully equipped with sunbeds, umbrellas, a café bar and water sports!
Want a day away from the beach? Our Kokkini Hani holidays have it all covered with plenty of fun-packed family activities on offer. Kokkini Hani has some wonderful archaeological ruins that are perfect for curious little explorers. There are also some excellent places to uncover the magical life beneath the sea - all your kids need is a snorkel which you can easily pick up in one of the local shops. If your kids want more, you can even visit Crete Aquarium 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 promises a great day out for all the family. And finally, if all that isn’t enough, holidays to Kokkini Hani also boast the only Ostrich farm on the island, a Donkey Sanctuary and is only a ten-minute drive away from the ever-so-popular Watercity.
