Very friendly authentic Greek town. Excellent for public transport with bus connections to Chania, heraklion, south of the island and many towns and villages en route. Major ferry port for mainland Greece and islands.
Old fishing port on edge of toen is well worth a visit with fish tavernas dotted round the edge.
If you like all the buzz of a tourist resort then stay well away. However if you want to sit at a street cafe and wile away the hours with a frappe or with a beer in a taverna full of Greek charm then Kastelli is the place for you.
We have a house in nearby Drapanias and find all that we need to stock up with either in our village or here.
