What to Do and What to See in Crete

The island of Crete is the ideal place to spend your holidays, whether you go with your family, or with friends!

Sfinari beach, Crete

The most famous and beautiful beaches are located on the Western side of the island, in Sfinari, Balos, and the archaeological sites of Falasarna and Elafonisi. With a short boat trip from Kissamos you can also reach Gramvoussa, and the Balos lagoon, where the sea waters are uniquely magnificent.

Always on the West Coast, not to be missed are the characteristic and marvelous Gorges of Samaria. Ideal for those who enjoy walking and trekking, visiting the gorges is a beautiful experience, but the walk is 18 kilometers long and is indicated especially for those who have some preparation.

Crete does not only have sea and beaches, but also has a very important historical heritage, having been ruled by various populations: Romans, Byzantines, Venetians and Ottomans. For lovers of culture and history, fundamental are the archaeological sites of Knossos and Phaistos, but also the necropolis of Fournì and the Archaeological Museum of Iraklion.

Crete is a very attractive destination for all, the beautiful beaches and the sea surrounding it are a strong attraction for those who enjoy staying in the Sun.
