The largest and most southern of the Greek islands, a Crete holiday will provide a memorable vacation for anyone who chooses to visit. With its golden beaches and azure waters, alongside the multitude of culture and history for anyone with a penchant for learning, Crete can provide much more for holiday-goers than just sun, sea and sand.
The White Mountains in the west offer travellers a reason to explore the outdoors. With a vast array of trails in the mountains, from leisurely strolls to more challenging hikes, you can experience the natural beauty of this wondrous island from the dizzy heights of mountainous terrain.
Venture inland to experience authentic Cretan life. Take an afternoon away from the tourist hubbub on the coast and discover the inland rustic villages.
