Where Zeus used to bathe

Crete | Crete is the most popular holiday destination for those people who want to spend their holiday in Greece. Due to the diverse countryside the biggest island in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea provides the holiday maker with many alternatives and options. Regardless whether you are seeking a holiday on the beach (more than 1000 kilometers of coastline), want to undertake a hiking tour to the mystic places related to the Greek Gods or just would like to take a stroll through one of the many attractive towns every holidaymaker will find this island an absolute paradise. Crete also welcomes families with children with open arms. The beaches offer the smallest family members a lot of space to play and explore. Those interested in exploring the sea world further down will find a selection of scuba diving schools where you can make your diving license. A popular daytrip is the under nature conservation protected Palm Beach of Vai which can be found on the east side of the island. It is referred to as the Caribbean beach of Europe as its characteristics are a fine white sandy beach surrounded by old palm trees. One of the most beautiful and longest beaches Crete offers can be found in Rethymnon. This is a tourist town with many fish taverns in a Venetian port and numerous small souvenir shops.
One of the main attractions of Crete is the Samaria Gorge on the south side of the island which is the longest in Europe. Those who dare may take a hike along the cliffs. In the Diktaean Cave, that is one of 3000 mountain caves to be found on Crete, you can experience the starting point of Greek Mythology. A legend has it that Zeus was born and raised in the cave of Psycho which is located in Lasithi in Eastern Greece not far away from Heraklion. Another popular tourist attraction is the palace of Knosso which is one of the most well known archeological excavation sites in the world.
When paying a visit to the town of Heraklion you must plan to visit the archaeological museum as it is regarded as one of the most spectacular of its kind with unique artifacts. To round off a lovely day you should also plan to look up one of the many taverns. Here you can take in and be enchanted by the Greek folklore with Mediterranean flair until late into the night.

    “We already knew the west and south of the island and were a little disappointed with the nearby beaches. The nearest beach is very easy to reach on foot but the wind that we had the week we were there only allowed us to go there once (impossible to stay the other days). Alternating sand and pebbles, it is far from being the most beautiful beach on the island. At 10cm from the sign announcing the end of the beach labeled "blue flag": detritus / plastics drag around :-( The beach of Voulisma (golden beach), a little further away was sheltered from the wind and is very beautiful but small and invaded by the deckchairs and parasols to be rented.
    The tavern down the street is very nice. Greek singers and dancers come in the evening. For all other activities: car or bus required. It is nice to walk in Agios Nikolaos, and some nice outings (by car) to do in the surroundings.”

    “In the village you can buy everything for your daily needs. Enough taverns, but fluctuating quality. Come obviously on form on the day of the staff. Neat beach where loungers and umbrellas are available (7, - € for 2 per.).

    Worth a trip to the small fishing village of Mochlos with tavernas by the sea. Agios Nikolaus has ourselves against not so much like, perhaps due to the hectic pace that prevailed on that day. Excursions in the area are highly recommended. You meet everywhere very hospitable and open-minded people.”
