Very beautiful, but you can be harassed by people trying to get you into their restaurant. On the whole we found most retaurants to have good food, so we ate in the back streets where it was a bit quiter.

Worth a visit. Walk out to the lighthouse, explore the hidden views and shops in the back streets, and eat at a harbor-front restaurant. Tip: Walk by the restaurants and check the price of beer. We found one with beer almost half the price of others, and so was the food, and it was delicious.

This was my forth time over more than 20 years in Chania and I love the timelessness of the Old Harbour. The busy restaurants around the harbour side with the clean waters and the lighthouse dominating proceedings. I can feel myself relaxing just thinking of it. There are plenty of benches to sit on around the harbour if you dont want to buy a drink from any of the multiple choices open to you and you can get a good walk in too if you walk around to the lighthouse and then back again.
