Crete is the largest of all the Greek islands, and it’s a great place to explore and create lasting memories. A tour of Crete can be incredibly rewarding; between visiting historic Minoan palaces like Knossos - renowned for its incredible architecture and frescoes - or Phaistos located in south Crete, there’s no shortage of things to do.
Of course, one of the island’s main attractions has to be its stunning beaches. Elafonisi beach is especially popular for its dazzling crystal-clear waters and pink sand, but don’t forget about boat tours out to nearby islets Gramvousa and Spinalonga - perfect for taking a dip!
For those looking to soak up Crete’s culture and history, Gortyn mustn't be missed. Once a major city-state in ancient Greece, today it's an archaeological site with well-preserved ruins that are sure to amaze. If you're after wonderful views of natural landscapes on your travels, look no further than Samaria Gorge - one of the longest gorges in Europe.
There really is something for everyone when it comes to exploring Crete. With countless amazing sights and experiences in store, you won't want to miss out on this incredible destination!
