From Phalasarna in the west to Vai in the east, Crete is much more than just stunning beaches and phenomenal sunsets – although who has a problem with that? Take a break from the resort towns and hike up to Mount Psiloritis (keep your camera handy!) or explore the Crete of long ago. Visit the palaces of Phaistos and Aghia Triadha south of Heraklion, or the Minoan palace turned residence of turtles in Kato Zakros. End the day with dakos and Greek salad after watching the sunset, for you’re never too far away from the sea in Crete!


On top of all the history at every turn, the friendly locals will make sure you find the best part of each village, and invite you to the town party, or glendi. Whether you’re dancing to the hits in a bar in Aghios Nikolaos or at a concert in Heraklion, wherever you go you have to try a bit of raki –traditional Cretan grappa- and wash it down with fresh fruits!


Whether you want a quiet, romantic retreat with your partner or a lively trip with your mates, there’s a spot in Crete that suits your holiday style. Book your next holiday to Crete with loveholidays.com today and be swept away by the natural beauty of Crete tomorrow!
