The victim reportedly died after being knifed in the chest following a brawl outside a nightclub in the notorious party town of Malia.
A 19-year-old British man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing.
Another 17 young men are believed to have been held after they were involved in the violent altercation.
Witnesses told local media that up to 30 men, all believed to be British, were caught up in the fracas, ekathimerini.com reported.
