Lying in the Aegean Sea, Crete is a mountainous island with spectacular rocky coasts, vast sandy beaches, pebble shores and pristine crystal-clear Mediterranean waters. The interior is equally stunning, with green, lush, mountainous terrain. Rich in history and culture, with impressive architecture in its towns and villages and many archaeological sites, Crete is well worth a visit.
Greece’s largest island, Crete is the birthplace of Europe’s earliest civilisations and is brimming with ancient history and myths. It’s an island of dramatic beauty and diverse geography, with steep gorges running through spectacular mountain ranges, Europe’s only palm tree forest in the east, isolated beaches and coves on the south coast, and land peppered with vineyards and olive groves. Cretans are a hospitable people and proud of their culture – you will still see small, traditional villages where the local costume is worn to this day.
