Take the time to walk out to lighthouse. The harbor and city take on a whole new look. When the light is behind you the city just seems to glow.

The lighthouse sits proudly at the front of the little harbour and it is one of the most photographed places in Chania. Gorgeous at sunset and in the early morning. Have a coffee in a little cafe and be mesmerized by the view.

A wonderful aspect from this spot with great views over the harbour. Well worth the walk along the breakwater.
