Introduction

A cultural oasis, an island shrouded in the mystery of Greek mythology, a culinary adventure and a little slice of paradise – Crete has quite the reputation. What we do know is that it is an amazing place to spend a holiday.

Home to vibrant cities, sleepy villages, a coastline to rival any in the world and, of course, a tale of a mythological half-man-half-bull beast that is said to stalk the island – Crete is a one of a kind holiday experience. Wander the winding, cobbled streets of the Old Town and stop by for a spot of lunch in the quaint tavernas.

Bask in the warm Mediterranean sunshine as you take in the incredible views of the Samaria National Park or head into the countryside to visit the quaint villages of Gouves. Whether you’re looking to party in Malia or unwind in Stalis, Crete can provide those unforgettable holiday memories.

 

Stunning scenery and incredible legends

As the largest of the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea there is a huge amount of diversity to be found in Crete. It caters for all types of holidaymaker ranging from the party town of Malia (as featured in the Inbetweeners Movie), the cosmopolitan capital of Heraklion, the hideaway for the rich and famous of Elounda to the villages tucked away in the countryside.

Crete is not just the pretty face as it has a hugely layered and intriguing history. Immerse yourself in the unique culture of this corner of the world, discover the Palace of Knossos a base for the Minoans; one of the first rulers of Crete over 4,000 years ago. Visit the Venetian-inspired settlements of Hania and Rethymo while indulge in a little Greek mythology with tales of the Minotaur – the famous beast of the island.

Of course, you could swap all that for getting some serious rest and relaxation. Spend a week or two basking in the warm sunshine and embrace the blissful serenity of Crete’s rolling hills and peaceful rural areas. Venture to one of the beautiful beaches in the shadow of the mountains and perhaps try out snorkelling in the calm ocean waters.

A visit to Crete would not be complete without sampling the delicious Greek cuisine. Dive into a taverna and indulge in locally sourced ingredients in an area which is considered to have one of the healthiest diets in the world. Don’t forget to try the wine and a fiery shot of raki, of course.
