Holidays in Crete tick just about every box imaginable. Ancient history? Check. Glorious beaches? Yep. Knock-out scenery? Most definitely. And there’s much, much more besides..
If you’ve got holidays in Crete on your agenda, there are plenty of different resorts to cater to virtually every different taste and preference imaginable. It’s the largest of the Greek islands after all, so it certainly comes with plenty of choice and bags of character.
Families will find a great range of amenities and well-equipped hotels in top resorts like Rethymnon and Hersonissos, which have plenty of local amenities and activities on offer. Enjoy great beaches with sunbeds and watersports, where the kids can build sandcastles to their hearts’ content while you kick back and relax. Or, whisk the little ones off for a boat trip for the day – perhaps to the historic site of Spinalonga Island, or a relaxing day exploring the local bays and hidden coves of the gorgeous Cretan coastline.
If you’re here with friends, and you’re looking for something a little more upbeat, the non-stop resort of Malia could be right up your street. During the summer months, this energetic resort comes alive with a heady selection of bars, pubs and clubs that keep their doors open well into the early hours.
Or if you’ve got a romantic escape in mind, try the lovely resort of Elounda for a luxury stay in a first-rate hotel, where you can enjoy the swanky marina or pop along to the local beach, and dine out of an evening in one of Crete’s fabulous restaurants.
