Holidays to Crete
Carved by mountain ranges and steep ravines, Crete is a hiker’s paradise. Test your stamina with a trek up the Samariá Gorge or take it easy at The Valley of the Dead. Not your style? Keep your feet firmly on the ground as you explore the island’s snoozy villages. Saunter down narrow market streets and you’ll be greeted by a heavenly blend of sweet honey and wild herbs. Walk a bit further and you’re bound to find a traditional taverna or two. Bit of a history buff? Be sure to keep your eye out for ancient ruins as you wander – this Mediterranean wonderland is full of ‘em!
But it’s not all hiking trails and historic palaces. Party people rejoice – towns like Malia and Hersonissos are home to Crete’s hottest bars and clubs. You’ll be Zorba dancing ‘til dawn in these parts. Oh, and let’s not forget the food! A holiday to Crete takes you on a gastronomic journey like no other. Think crumbly cheeses, flaky pastries, and some of the freshest seafood you’ve ever tried.
Whether you’re looking for relaxing beach break, a cultural escape, or a full-on foodie tour, you really can’t go wrong with a holiday in Crete.
