Crete: The Ideal Destination for Everyone

Crete is the largest and most popular Greek island. It’s also referred to as being the most beautiful and the most unique. Located in the most southern part of Greece, Crete is a mixture of breathtaking beaches and diverse landscape.

With a fantastic atmosphere, welcoming attitude and plenty to see and do, it’s not surprising that Crete is frequented by thousands of tourists every year. Lots of different types of tourists.

Yup. Crete is the ideal destination for every type of holidaymaker – whether you’re a family of four seeking a break from everyday life or a loved up couple looking for a little romance.


There is something to do for everyone who chooses Crete as their holiday destination.

For the Families

Crete has long been the island of choice for families. With lots to see and do, it’s easy to see why people return here year after year.  There is a selection of exciting water parks to visit, perfect for keeping everyone in the family entertained. For older children, there are plenty of water sports to get involved with, including taking scuba diving lessons.

For the days in which you want to save a little money and catch some sun? There are plenty of family friendly beaches to lay down your towel and have a splash in the clear blue water!

For the Couples

Crete has been referred to as the ultimate romantic destination for couples – and we think this is true. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or planning your honeymoon, Crete is the perfect getaway for those seeking romance.

Rethymno has a ruggish charm that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. The old quarter is where most people head, with stunning traditional Venetian architecture and a gorgeous waterfront. The waterfront is full of bars and taverns – perfect for couples to sit and watch the world go by.

You can head to any part of Crete and spend hours walking around the delightful villages. Each has its own selection of cosy pubs and delicious restaurants – you’ll be spoilt for choice.

For the Explorer  

Travelling to Crete with friends or as a solo traveller and looking for adventure? There are plenty of places to explore within the island – especially for those want to delve into the rich history.

We suggest taking a trip to the south west of the island to tackle the Samaria Gorge. This is a 16 km walk that is considered to be one of the most challenging on the island. If you prefer something a little less exhausting, there are plenty of museums on the island to explore. Our favourite is the Heraklion Archaeological Museum which houses an extensive collection of Minoan art.
