The largest Greek island in the Mediterranean Sea, Crete is one of Greece's most popular vacation destinations. A fascinating mixture of beautiful beaches, picturesque towns, and ancient historical sites, Crete's diversity surprises many visitors who come here thinking there's little more to see beyond sun, sand, and surf. With a landscape that is among the most beautiful in the country, it's no wonder Crete's people have such a contagious warm and welcoming vitality and love of life.
Consider these activities and attractions for your Cretan vacation itinerary:
Because of the island's popularity, its hotels are very crowded all year long, except during the winter when the island empties out. Instead of fighting the crowds, get a vacation rental of your very own instead. From apartments in Crete's towns and cities to quiet rural cabins and beachfront villas, options abound and you'll get to enjoy all the comforts of home during your Greek vacation.
Given its size and popularity, Crete makes an excellent base for further exploration of the Ionian and Aegean Islands. You can also travel to the Greek mainland by sea or air to explore the capital city of Athens.
