THE GREAT ESCAPE

Mythical Crete, the largest island in Greece, is more like a country of its own. From the western Chania region to the easternmost point of Lasithi, there are countless attractions to encounter, some of them known all over the world and some kept like an intimate secret.

ITS OWN COUNTRY

Location: Southern Aegean

Capital: Heraklion

Size: 8,335.882

Accessibility: By plane or ferry from Piraeus port and various Cycladic islands

It is no wonder that Crete is loved by Greeks and foreigners alike. Wild nature, rich culture, amazing gastronomy, vibrant traditions and unique climate make for an all-year-round destination, with every season offering distinctive, unforgettable experiences. This majestic island is a place of limitless potential, a land where steep, imposing gorges give way to spectacular coastlines with all kinds of beaches, good-natured locals insisting on treating you with a savoury meal soundtracked by the melodic tunes of local music, archaelogical sites that take you back to the Ancient Minoan times and numerous activities and adventures to chose from. 

ESSENTIALS


1

WE LOVE

The seductive Old Town of Chania with its Venetian heritage and distinctive architectural styles. Sunrises in the Gulf of Elounda, with Spinalonga island standing imposing and otherwordly. The pink sand beaches of Elafonisi and Balos in Chania and the startling white of the clay beaces of Xerokampos in Lasithi.

LOCAL TIPS

To avoid long queues, visit Knossos Palace during the spring or autumn months. Explore the rural lifestyle with a visit to a mitato (traditional shepherd’s hut) and try the amazing homemade cheese with a shot of raki. Don’t miss a concert by traditional Cretan orchestras or musicians. To truly understand the Cretan spirit, pick a copy of “Zorba the Greek” or any other book by celebrated author Nikos Kazantzakis.
