As the third-largest Greek island, Crete has something to cater for all tastes and preferences. Whether you're looking to relax on sun-kissed beaches, discover all about ancient civilisations, go hiking in the mountains or enjoy countless excellent meals, the island won't disappoint. Head to Chania on the western side of the island to explore the city's charming Old Town, with its maze of narrow alleyways, beautiful churches, fountains and preserved monuments. You could also spend time enjoying the scenery and the natural beauty of the White Mountains and national park around Chania. Over in the east is the Lasithi region, known for the Palm Beach Forest of Vai. Pay a visit to stretch out on the soft sand, take a dip in the Mediterranean and stroll through the area's enchanting palm forest. The award-winning beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful spots in the Med and as such attracts a large number of visitors every year.

Food and drink

Wine is part of the culture on Crete and there's evidence showing it has been produced here for more than 4,000 years. You should certainly make the effort to try some locally-produced vintages during your stay. Perhaps take the opportunity to tour some of the island's vineyards around Chania and Heraklion to find out how the process works and what goes into making a bottle of vilana or kotsifali. Finding quality tavernas that serve fresh, locally-sourced produce is no problem whatsoever and you're sure to be delighted with the variety of dishes available. Traditional options such as moussaka and souvlaki are just the start and thanks to the abundance of fresh ingredients on Crete, you'll quickly develop a love of healthy Greek cuisine.
