The beautiful sandy beach of Kokkini Hani lies in the northern part of Crete approximately 12 km east from the capital city of Heraklion (Iraklion).
The beach belongs to the same-named Kokkini Hani Resort which lies close to the capital city of Heraklion and has a good touristic background. The coast of the resort consists of the main sandy beach of Kokkini Hani and several smaller pebbly beaches and bays.
The Kokkini Hani Beach is a beautiful and roomy sandy beach with a gradual entry into the sea. It is therefore no surprise that the resort is often visited by families with children. The beach is fully equipped and well-organized with many options of adrenaline water sports. The refreshment is ensured by several bars and kiosks serving cool drinks and close to the beach you can find also nice tavernas and cafes.
Kokkini Hani is popular among young tourists searching for night life entertainment and can be therefore quite crowdy during the summer season.
