Crete is an incredible holiday destination for all types of getaways. You can enjoy yourself whatever you’re into; whether it’s active holidays or something a little more relaxing, and what’s more is that you don’t even have to spend a lot of money doing it! Crete really is a phenomenal place to spend a holiday; in summer or winter! So what can you do for not a lot of money on a Cretan holiday? Well, here are a few of our favourites:

Be Creative

With stunning surroundings Crete is the perfect place to get creative; with its amazing landscape it’s hard to not feel inspired! So bring your sketchbook; even if you’re not an artist, it’s a great activity for kids! If sketching really isn’t for you, try photography; this way you can keep your holiday memories forever, as a lovely piece of wall art for example.

Beach Fun

As there are a number of gorgeous beaches in Crete, you really are spoilt for choice. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a land lubber or you simply love the sea, there are so many activities that you can enjoy on the beach. For family fun have a sandcastle building competition, or go snorkelling in the tantalising clear waters of the Cretan coast.

Get Active

Feeling active? Well, be inspired by the Ancient Greeks and get active! Play volleyball, go running, play bat & ball on the beach, or bring your roller skates and go skating; there are plenty of ways to get active in Crete. Of course, those who are really looking for a fantastic active holiday can always go hiking through the White Mountains.

Experience Culture

You don’t have to go far to experience Cretan culture, by simply walking to another village you can immerse yourself in interesting culture. From Minoan culture, to Roman and ancient Greek structures; you can find it all on this gorgeous island.
