Things To Do
From hiking the Samaria Gorge to pink sand beaches, visiting the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, local Cretan cooking classes and the city of Rethymon, there’s a ton to do on Crete.
Village of chania
See the Venetian Harbor, historical buildings, museums, churches and shops among narrow streets. Eat an one of the many waterfront restaurants.
A pink sand beach and crystal clear Meditteranean waters. Swim across the lagoon to a small, uninhabited island for a peek at a historic lighthouse. Many say Elafonisi as one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete, if not in all of Greece.
palace of knossos
A labyrinth of massive columns and beautiful frescos and the seat of ancient Minoan civilization that disappeared in the 14th century. According to legend, it was also home to the mythical Minotaur of King Minos. The site was restored extensively in the early 1900s. Since then, it has become the biggest tourist attraction on Crete.
