If you want lashings of sun, sea and souvlaki then Crete is the destination for you. Situated in the southern Aegean Sea, Crete is the largest of the Greek islands. There’s no shortage of postcard-perfect Blue Flag beaches to spend lazy sun-soaked days on, but if you want to explore historical Greece at its most beautiful, you’ll be spoilt for choice here. Whether you want to chill out in Aghios Nikolaos, relax in the sun-kissed resorts of Chania and Bali or party all night in buzzing Malia, holidays in Crete tick every box.


You'll be in for a treat if you're a foodie as the island is known for having the best cuisine in Greece. Indulge in traditional Cretan cheese (with almost every village having its own signature taste), Sfakia pies (dough stuffed with the liquor raki and soft goats or sheep's cheese and fried) and Ntakos (a bruschetta style dish topped with tomato, olives, Cretan cream cheese and oil).


The best time to visit Crete is during the months of spring, but the climate is ideally suitable all through the year. April to mid-October is a popular time to flock to the island, making spring best if you wish to escape excessive crowds. Heraklion International Airport “Nikos Kazantzakis” is the nearest airport to Crete at a distance of 32 km and Crete is well connected to all the major hotspots. Crete holidays are a magical combo of vibrant cities, dreamy villages and heavenly beaches and there is self-catering, full board and luxury holidays to suit every budget.

Something for everyone from summer playgrounds of golden sands to peaceful relaxation in the pine-fringed calas of the east coast.
