More About Crete
Crete, the birthplace of the legendary Zeus, has a diverse culture shaped by centuries of history including the Minoans, the first civilisation in Europe, followed by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians and Turks. It is the largest of the Greek islands and enjoys a long summer season so it‘s perfect for enjoying the golden sandy beaches and clear blue sea. Four mountain ranges, high enough to be snow-clad in winter, dominate the rolling foothills and broad coastal plains. There are a variety of resorts from the traditional small fishing villages to larger more cosmopolitan resorts so it's easy to find somewhere suitable for couples or families. There's a fantastic choice of luxury accommodation to choose from, including adult-only hotels, deluxe villas and family-friendly venues. Chania is great for beach lovers with Agioi Apostoloi having three outstanding bays with Blue Flag sandy beaches. Chania Town also has a covered market, historical buildings and a good nightlife scene. Aghios Nikolaos is stylish and cosmopolitan with a charming coastline, plenty of shops and restaurants and it's a good place for watersports too. Elounda has Blue Flag beaches and historic attractions plus it's close to Spinalonga Island. Hersonissos boasts a lively waterfront bursting with bars, restaurants, hotels and shops and there are two waterparks within easy reach - perfect for families. The island has a good bus service in most towns. However, if you really want to get out and explore, car hire is recommended. Roads are mostly easy to navigate and you'll be able to find your way to well-known tourist spots as well as wonderful places off the beaten track.
