"Crete" Crete Island by kentishgirl

Crete Island Travel Guide: 1,458 reviews and 3,871 photos

Crete is a huge island, and it is impossible to explore it all in one trip.
Our visit was based in the East of Crete, but the West and South are both supposedly very different.

Crete is located south in the Med and so gets some of the best weather in all of Greece, it is so big it could almost be a country in its own right.

Knossos- home of the Minator in Greek Mythology is based here on Crete - and I diddnt get a chance to vist - so is not included in my tips (maybe next time!), but is a very popular excursion.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:very hot and very different from anywhere else I have visited in Greece
  • Cons:you cannot explore everything in 1 trip
  • In a nutshell:Beaches, Stunning small towns, Nightlife and home of Greek Mythology
