EasyJet: Cheap flights to Chania, Crete

ejheader2If you are looking for a long or short break to Chania, then book a cheap flight with easyJet. Chania is found on the western coast of the beautiful island of Crete. Although it was heavily bombed during World War II it is still considered to be one of the most beautiful towns on Crete.
A holiday in Chania centres mainly around the old town. The locals tend to inhabit the local back streets, while the harbour is the main hotspot for tourists.
Although there are many beautiful beaches to enjoy in and around Chania, there are also many exciting places to explore. The Samaria Gorge National Park should be top of your list. You can take a walk through the park which starts in the village of Ornalos and winds through 18km of beautiful surroundings and ends at the beach in Agia, where you can take a refreshing dip in the sea to cool off.
An ideal day out is to rent a car and take a drive to see the only lake on Crete (Lake Kournas approx 50km west of Chania). After, relax in one of the local Tavernas and have a spot of lunch. Crete has more than 3,000 caves to explore – including Sfentoni, Ideon and Kamares to name just a few.
After a day at the beach or a day of exploring you can relax and unwind at one of the delightful restaurants or tavernas. The local menus include healthy delicacies such as Ntakos and Kalitsounia. Unsurprisingly, fresh fish features heavily on the restaurant menus down by the seafront.
