Come Visit Crete

The Port of Heraklion

Crete is not just Greece’s largest island, but also the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The climate is considered one of the mildest and healthiest in Europe. All across Crete you will find reminders of an admirable history, from the ruins of the Minoan palace of Knossos to the Venetian fortresses of Rethymo, from old mosques and Byzantine monasteries to the cave that is the legendary birthplace of Zeus. The Venetian port of Chania is one of Greece’s most graphic cities and the capital, Heraklion is the fifth largest city in Greece.

An island famous for its natural beauty and diverse landscape. Spectacular mountain ranges dotted with caves are sliced by dramatic gorges that spill out to sea. The east boasts Europe’s only palm-tree forest beach and the south coast has some of the most stunning beaches and isolated coves.

Balos and Gramvoussa

Cretans are proud and hospitable people who have preserved their culture and customs. They honour their guests, since visitors are not just passers-by on Crete but friends. Throughout the island you will come across traditional mountain villages and agricultural settlements untouched by tourism.

Crete is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Greece. With accommodations that suit all types of holiday, from a cheap holiday to a luxury getaway and many places to explore.
