Rethymno marina is relatively new and provides a good range of services. The town has all the facilities a visiting yacht would need and the old Venetian town with its small harbor is one of the most attractive spots on Crete.
Réthymnon is the third largest town on Crete and lies half way along the northern coast of Crete, at the foot of the Psilorítis range. The old town has many Venetian mansions, Turkish houses with enclosed timber balconies, several small mosques (18th century) and the Fortezza (14th century, extended in 16th century), within which is a mosque with a massive dome. The Archeological Museum, opened in 1990 next to the Fortezza, is famous for its exhibits.
The town is a popular tourist resort and there is plenty to see and good, well organised tours to the many sights. If you are here for the last week of July you will be able join in the Cretan Wine Festival and sample some of the excellent produce. Hire cars are available in the town and buses connect to Chania and Iraklion. There is a ferry to Piraeus.
