The resort area of Kokkini Hani, which is also spelled Kokkini Chani, is located on the Greek island of Crete just a 14km drive away by car rental in Kokkini Hani from Heraklion, where Crete's biggest and busiest airport is situated.
In the early 20th century, Kokkini Hani became a popular place for farmers to eat and rest on their way to the Heraklion market. A hani was an inn where both people and animals could spend the night. Kokkini Hani's name is no less appropriate today, even though modern beachfront hotels, restaurants, and souvenir shops have replaced traditional hanis.
Companies which offer cheap car hire in Kokkini Hani include Anna Cars, Inter Hellas, Olympic, Soultatos SA, and The Best. Many of the numerous hotels lining Kokkini Hani's shoreline also feature car rental desks.
Kokkini Hani's beaches along Crete's north shore are the main attractions for most visitors, and Kokkini Hani's main beach is 400m long, 50m wide, and filled with soft, smooth sand. This main beach, however, does get crowded, especially on Wednesdays, when residents from nearby Heraklion arrive, and weekends.
Most of the less crowded alternatives to Kokkini Hani's main beach have pebbled shorelines, but the best beach in the area is said to be located in front of Themis Hotel. The shoreline on this beach is smooth and sandy. The area's nightlife is fairly tame compared to nearby Hersonissos, not far away with car hire in Kokkini Hani Crete.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
