Crete has some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. Here are just a few of them, including a couple of my favourites.
Most people studied Greek Mythology in school. On Crete it comes to life. The island is full of treasures both myth and reality. A wander through the ancient temple and Minoan palace ruins is a great memory to take away.
Another thing the Cretans are well known for is their hospitality. They should be better known for their food. Greek food is not just souvlaki, meatballs, stifado and dalmades ! There are many fine restaurants and tavernas ( grills ) on Crete offering a huge variety of food. This is just a few of them around the Apokoronas area.
Many people come to Crete to walk the gorges. This is a description of the best of them throughout Crete.
Crete isn't just about beaches, it has some wonderful landscapes with pretty villages dotted about. This is a sample of some of the best of them.
