nice little harbor but nothing special.got rather fed up of the pushy salesmen from the restaurants.some are pricey some are not but the food looks good.bars in that area can be quite expensive.if you want a chic harbour then go to Chania its gorgeous

It is so much smaller and the restaurants are taking most of the space, making it difficult to walk through. Chania venetian port was way way more impressive.

It has its charm, but the one in Chania is much better. This is kind of small, and quite crowded. Take a walk on the beach alley instead - it is a lot more peaceful and still has a view to the lighthouse.

Watch the sun go down from your waterside table at the best restaurant - Zefyros.
If you want to take photos go for a coffee in the morning and sit at any restaurant to get amazing shots

A lovely small square harbour which is dominated by nice restaurants which hug the space between buildings and harbour front. The view across the harbour is intimate and attractive
