Crete Holidays



If slow, vibrant sunsets, long beaches and deliciously fresh food catch your fancy, Crete holidays are for you. The largest of all the Greek islands is filled with picturesque villages, luscious fields, and lively towns sure to keep you out all night - oh, and did we mention 300 days of sun a year!


Start your holiday to Crete in charming Chania or bustling Heraklion and work your way into the countryside that has captivated visitors for millennia. Hike the gorgeous Samaria Gorge down to the southern coast and reward yourself with a cool dip in the Libyan Sea. The less adventurous can spend their days along the beaches of Kolymbari, Sissi, or Rethymnon, while the night owls can party in hotspots like Malia and Hersonissos. From the mountains to the sea, find your perfect holiday with loveholidays.com!


Crete has a varied coastline and rugged mountains for you to explore, so take a look at some of our phenomenal deals on holidays to Crete, or get even more inspiration below.

From Phalasarna in the west to Vai in the east, holidays in Crete offer 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 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 before you know it!


Not fussed on where you want to go on holiday this year? Then take a quick look at Side Holidays and Kos Holidays where you’ll discover two very popular resorts bursting with energy and opportunities to relax, guaranteed to bring sunshine and smiles to your holiday this year.
