The vibrant nightlife on Crete will make your clubbing holiday simply irresistible. The tavernas, dance clubs, music venues, nightclubs and a lot more party places are sprinkled all over the island, especially near Heraklio, Chania and Mallia. The music in clubs is a mixture of various scenes: top 40ís pop artists, traditional Greek, electronic and even heavy metal may spin at any given time.
