Crete! a small continent, an ideal destination
Traveling to Crete is something very special. On this large, scenic island with its dramatic history, there are both larger cities with a bustling folk life and smaller villages with everyday life that flows at a leisurely pace. The common denominator is the fantastic beaches, the crystal clear sea and the wonderful feeling of being in Greece. The location far south in the Mediterranean provides a summer season that lasts from April to November. A fabulous nature, exciting sights and attractive tourist areas make Crete the perfect destination. Which Crete suits you best? Do you want a quiet and child-friendly holiday or are you looking for lovely beaches and lots of fun? Or maybe both? There are hundreds of wonderful destinations in Crete, from Kolymbari in the west to Europe’s southernmost city, Ierapetra, in the south.
