Holidays in Crete are a beach lover's dream; from quiet pebbled coves to long golden sandy beaches the island has some of the best in Greece. It is fairly easy to find a peaceful spot in one of the quieter resorts or for the more active the bigger resorts have a choice of beach bars complete with sun loungers and a vast amount of water sports on offer.

Crete Holidays - Lovely food
Choosing the right resort in Crete is one thing but for many the most important thing on their holidays is the food, locally produced fruit and vegetables and fresh seafood make up a good proportion of dishes served as well as classic meat dishes such as Kleftiko and Stifado. Even the big and brash resorts have a wide choice of local family restaurants where traditional dishes are served along with a locally brewed Raki. The bigger resorts have the usual fast food chains too so noone will go hungry!
Crete holidays are not just about the beach and the food, there is a huge range of attractions that are popular with tourists. There are over six hundred miles of coastline which is lapped by the turquoise waters of the Med and plenty of boat trips to secluded spots available. Away from the beach and inland there is a beautiful rugged landscape waiting to be discovered and walking or biking tours are available to book locally. There are ancient ruins from civilisations in the past who lived here many hundreds of years ago including the fascinating archaeological site at the ancient Minoan city of Knossos. And then of course there are the aqua parks that are always a popular choice with families.
